Old house in Atami

Atami, where we’ve been on the weekend, has been a popular seaside town for many years for it’s nice climate and hot springs, many rich people have had their vacation houses there. During our stay there we visited one of those houses - the original owner was a famous author lived in 19th century, now some university owns the property and we can see the house and garden. This house is in the midst of the residential area on hillside, next to a small stream. For it’s a private house so not much big still has a nice, quaint garden. We really enjoyed our visit.

I really love these old, nice but small houses, about 100 years old. Japanese traditional houses were built with woods thus difficult to remain for many years (over 100 years, I mean), these houses are very precious.
