Abandoned House on Ogijima



One of my favorite abandoned houses on Ogijima. Seen from below like this it looks enormous, but when you walk on the other side, you realize that not so much. That wall though makes it look like a castle (sort of…)

    Great angle, David! I remember you showing us this building on the visit to Ogi… I think you could do some great things with that tiny castle 😉

    • Thanks Patrick.
      Yes, I’m glad how the picture turned out.
      And the house… in an ideal world, I’d love to get it and renovate it, but it’s not that realistic actually (maybe if I knew a thing or two about renovation), and the main issue is that it’s really not that big despite the way it looks, not sure I can fit both kids in it. 😉

    I always loved this one when the vines are full of green leaves. Looks much better, and probably helps with the structure too. 🙂

    • Yeah, I don’t know how long the house will stand. I always worry that the next time I go it’ll be gone. Well, when this happens, it’s usually because of typhoons. The beams of this one seem pretty sturdy though.
