Old houses and buildings in Japan

The type of old crumbling houses that we can still see here and there, but are fast disappearing. I have deliberately avoided the nice famous ones, the beautiful old farmhouses and temples and palaces. I can make another board for them some other time. Here are the mom and pop shops and town houses that used to be so common but are almost all gone. I have also included "modern" buildings built in Taisho and Showa eras, especially prewar Showa.
