Return to Round Windows

For some reason, posts of round windows have always been popular, and as all of my old blog posts are now missing photos because I left a particular photo hosting site I thought I would post some recent photos.

The first one is from the former residence of Japans 26th prime Minister Tanaka Giichi, in Hagi Yamaguchi. The second is from Shoji-ji Temple in the Oharano district of Kyoto.

This third one is from the Jippotei, a collection of traditional buildings in YamaguchiCity.

The last 2 are from the former Yoshimatsu Residence in Kushima, Kagoshima.

Some More Round Windows


My posts on the round windows of Japan have been popular, so here is a selection of ones I've found recently. This first one has to be one of my favorites. It is in an outbuilding in Henshoin Garden, in Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture.


This one is in the Ohashi House, a wealthy merchants home in  Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture.


This one is in a shelter in the garden next to Fukuyama Castle in Hiroshima Prefecture.


Korakuen garden in  Okayama.


The Chinese garden Enchoen, on the shore of Togo Lake in Tottori.
