Love it!

Below: the amazing bleak-as-fuck pattern of the shimo-kitazawa city hall:

The claustrophobically oppressive yet colorful ambience  of the under-the-freeway mall near Hatsudai

    Just wanted to say thanks for your blog.  I check in about once a week and always look forward to it.  The 3rd and 4th pictures remind me a lot of the inside of the art museum here in Milwaukee, WI.

    On "piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiipes" one:
    Somebody was high on the Windows 95 "pipe" screensaver before he designed that one !

    See, the bleak as fuck town hall image gets me thinking: Are those windows? And if so, why is there a darkened row? Is it concealing some type of Being John Malkovich half floor? And if so, whose mind does it inevitably lead to? Hideo Higashikokubaru? Koichi Toyama? Shittaro Ishihara?
    I'm going to assume you wake up in the Tama River afterwards though. Under a highway overpass and covered in fucking pirhanas.

    Also, I wish I took a photo of the pair of houses opposite my old digs in Ota-ku. Each was roughly as wide as 2 doors including outer wall thickness on either side. By comparison, using that measurement model, I swear I could fit 3 doors on yours. What was more whack was that they then BENT to the sides like the rather useful L block in Tetris. Quite possibly thin building record holders.
