Architecture in Izumi-cho
Izumi-cho in Suginami-ku. It's famous for... well... I guess this weird ass building.
Yeah, that's a Pegasus built into the roof. Seriously, unless you are looking for obscure ramen shops, there is no way you would ever go down this street.
It's right off of route 20, which is this major street that goes from Tokyo out west a few hundred kilometers. Who knows what mysteries lie just off the congested streets of the city.
I guess this is what happens with the real estate in Tokyo is worth more than a Ferrari per square meter. Of course, that bubble burst many many years ago.
How many girls would get cold feet if you brought them back to this door? Or maybe this was someone's dream pad. All kinds of bling going on here.
No idea. Looks like some sort of... button pedestal?
The stairs to the button pedestal room.
In a land where most people don't want to live in anything other than a brand new disposable house, it's good to know that wierd shit is still out there.
