As you might imagine, we Japanese are absorbed in Pokémon Go.

Many people at the street are looking down on their smart phone and their topics are always about Pokémon Go.

Some people said the sight of playing Pokémon Go was a symbol of being slave of Pokémon.

 

Among such things, Strange event had taken place in Yokohama city.

The event ad said that Pikachu will be mass produce!

We went to see that event.

I couldn’t believe my eyes for a moment.

Compared with people walking on the street the pikachu’s  scale was too large.

It seems about 500 meters until we would reach pikachu’s locating. pikachu of this event seemed very big.

Pikachu_outbreak2016_04

Gradually approaching, we could understand pikachu’s real scale. According to event’s explain, this large pikachu’s height was about 15 meters.

That was reason why we could see Pikachu figure from far place.

Where do you think that this house exists?

This house is in Nerima-ward in Tokyo Prefecture and was built at over 140 years ago.

Can you believe? We are able to live in this house still now.

This house’s structures are very strong and utilities are latest model.

 

nerimahouse2016__3505

The reason why is very simple. Carpenters renovated this house.

 

 

But it is OK to say that this renovate is no longer Revive.

When the owner ordered carpenters to renovate, this house was nearly dying.

 

So carpenters had decided to remake almost parts of house.

It’s really difficult thing. Perhaps you may think Japanese carpenter can renovate Japanese Traditional house.

 

But in temporary Japan, there are few carpenters who can deal with traditional house.

And this house’s broken condition was considerably terrible.

 

nerimahouse2016__3500

Actually it had taken over 1 year that period of renovating.

And then carpenters had revived this traditional house!

The ancestor of this house’s owner was wealthy farmer of this area.

So even in 140 years ago, he could build and keep this big house.

 

Carpenters made slope for handicapped people. I heard this house would be open for region.

You would be experience Japanese old house too.
