If you are looking for kuras/Japanese warehouses, Kyoto City is the place to visit!
Kuras come under all kinds of forms, styles and age!
This is only a small example of a search you easily turn into a full book!
I found this one near the entrance of the above Shinto shrine!
A real house in perfect state!
Splendid window and blinds!
Walls repainted anew!
Roofing in perfect repair!
It was actually part of a three-building complex!
The second kura!
A view from a different angle!
The family owning such an abode must be more than affluent!
Another kura quite nearby!
In need of repairs, though!
A few things missing indeed!
I found this one inside the precincts of a Buddhist Temple!
Rich Buddhist temples have a lot to protect in Kyoto!
Beautiful window and blinds in perfect repair!
Tightly closed doors!
Kizakura Sake brewery Kura that I have already introduced!
A kura transformed into a garage, or the other way round?
