Furuichi walk あみま古市ウォーク 7/10/2011

I was walking around historic road from Furuichi Kintetsu line station to Fujidera station. It was very hot summer time on July 10th, and I was sweating and drinking a lot of water. I haven been around, but I never walked around this places.

Hakutyou shrine near Furuichi station.

I crossed the signal to Konda Hachiman shrine.

Higashi koya kaidou, old pilgrimage road south east part of Osaka toward Koyasan mountain.

An entrance of Konda Hachiman shrine.

A phoenix is a symbolic animal derived from Chinese myth.

Another monument for East Koya Kaidou road signs. These stones are also from the ancient time.

Otoritsuka Kofun berial mound from about 6 century. 

I love ivy covered houses and buildings!

Old lanterns. It was hard to take photos, because they were at private housing area. I guess it used to be a part of the shrine before.

I liked the rusted sign...

Ok, so there are many sign, car no enter sign, crossing signal, and causion sign and the road sign.  So which sign you will see first?!

I wish I had a gut to ask there why they have the huge bowling pin... I should be some factory.

I took a break at the old emperor Yuryaku grave, sitting down and drinking water. Some local woman was looking who the hell hanging around. It a purely local oriented area, no tourists or not many people around, so they feel insecure.

A little path goes under the railway. So did they make railway first or the path?!

This monument is representing that they used to have a Fujidera baseball stadium near Fujidera station. Right now the team has changed their name and own home stadium at different place. This area has become a university campus.

Frank Lloyd Wright フランク ロイド ライト

Here is my school essay regarding Frank Lloyd Wright.

Yodoko Guest House

There are fourteen building designs, which Frank Lloyd Wright has done in Japan. Six building were built, but two of them were destroyed by the 1923 Magnitude 7.9 Great Kanto earthquake (around Tokyo.)

Frank Lloyd Wright traveled outside of America for the first time, and went to Japan with his wife. There were 37 years old in the year, and he spent two months touring natural and historical landmarks from Nikko (North East of Tokyo) all the way down to (Shikoku island) Takamatsu.

He made a contract to build the new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in late 1911. After a year of project delays and several trans-Pacific crossings, Wright finally took up part-time residence in Tokyo in January 1917. (Wrightian Architectural Archives Japan)

In 1918, Wright made a design plan for a second house for Tazaemon Yamamura who was the eighth-generation brewer of the famous sake “Sakuramasamurne,” in Nada (near Kobe.) It took a while …
