Japan – one surprise to note

Japan is a modern high tech society with a very high overall standard of living. The housing stock seems quite good but some notable exceptions can be found in the suburbs and in country areas. This picture is from Karatsu city and seems to indicate that some buildings are allowed to simply collapse naturally. in the rural areas this site is fairly common- I guess some of them are expiring from old age and the reality that they were built before good codes existed.
