There’s a certain beauty in longevity. Tokyo, mostly due to natural upheaval such as earthquakes and partially due to a booming desire for futurism, doesn’t have much in the way of architectural longevity. Luckily, a few pockets of history remain in this massive megalopolis.

Kyu Asakura HouseΒ is one of the prettiest of those pockets.

Stepping foot inside this former house of a local nobleman immediately transports you to a completely different era, a completely different world. It also reminds me of a Quentin Tarantino film set, but I acknowledge that might just be me…
