I was cycling around Yamato machi in Suruga Ku, Shizuoka City when I espied a green column poking out of a cluster of houses and decided to investigate!
That is when I realized it was an old chimney completely overgrown with ivy!
Getting near enough was nigh impossible as it was completely surrounded with no open access to it!
It is positively enormous by Japanese standards and would cost a fortune to pull down.
The company in front seemed to have ceased business.
They must have used an incinerator at their back.
There was some kind of access for a better view with a flight of stairs but it was safely locked!
I tried to walk though the high grass covering the small lane to another side access to what seemed a house or shed.
Unfortunately the gate was safely locked and the whole place overgrown with the trees of an abandoned garden, especially loquat trees!

Interesting. I enjoyed our time when lived in Japan for 3 months. Went back nearly 2 years ago. Miss it at times.
Amazing, these little forgotten places you discover when you do a bit of exploring.
