Foreign Friday

Rural barn
Misawa, Japan
Autumn 1980
On weekends, I put on my walking boots, grabbed my camera and wandered around the countryside. Sometimes, I went alone; other times, with friends. I saw more of the "real" Japan than those who stayed on the highways and in town. I found beauty in the raw images of rural Japan.

Note: that is corn drying under the eave of the barn.

  1. Looks very poor. What is the stuff hanging on the stick? Looks like bananas???? You are an adventurer

  2. It looks a bit like rural America. I too would like to know what is hanging on the stick.

  3. You were very smart. I always try to get "off the beaten path" when we go somewhere. I want to see how the REAL people live.

  4. I would get out and want to walk on weekends too. I think it's great you got to experience things from your own perspective. The photo looks very real.

  5. Your Friday posts are always interesting. That rural home does look poor but I've seen houses that gave me the same feeling of "poor" in Pa where we lived before Va.

  6. Reminds me of rural podunk. That's a tin roof on the porch, right? Sounds like home to me.
