Not Selling

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 15 October 2009 in Cityscape & Urban.

Starting today, I'll post photos of the mix of traditional and modern structures to be found in downtown Kyoto. To be honest, I always root for these little old places although I'm sure they're not so comfortable or convenient to live in. But their continued presence is a pleasing reassurance of the diversity of our humanity.

Nice title, I know exactly what you mean. I wonder how much the big corporation offered this family... Nice contrast and comparison.

Great juxtaposition! This reminds me of a story book I had as a kid about a little house that the city grew up around, but it stayed put! I always rooted for the little house too!

I especially like the unifying effect of the colors repeated in the image.
