Roka Park

Last weekend, I had a nice run to Roka Koshun-en Park.  This used to be the land owned by a famous early 20th Century writer - Kenjiro Tokutomi AKA Roka.

This is the actual house Roka lived from 1907 until his death in 1927.  It is preserved almost to the original condition and it is free to go inside.

Very simple tatami rooms.

The roof structure - woven bamboo sticks and thatch.

This Kamado was at earthen entrance area (doma).

Very narrow hallway.

Bamboo grove.

The park has a nice play ground

- and a dog park.

Tokyo Gas' tanks are right by this park.
