The spiritual Yokohama (6)

Some Japanese park have the old wooden houses of thatched roof. It is not for maintaining the heritages to the future. But it is for transferring the memory of way of living in the old days to the younger generation.

Way of living sometimes exerts greater influence on way of thinking of people than material possessed by them.

These old houses were common everywhere in Japan, either in country side or urban areas 100 years ago. But nowadays we can see it only in the natural parks.

When you are in such kind of houses, you will know how comfortable it is. It is warm in winter and cool in summer. The gentle atmosphere will surround you with smoky smell from the fire wood burned in the oven in the kitchen of the dirt floor.
