I Wish Japan Were Made Like this Landscape

Yesterday I talked about a Canadian classic hotel, today I’ll show you a picture of a townscape.

Niagara-on-the-lake is a small country town quite near Niagara Falls. On a journey from Niagara Falls to here, wine vineyards are spread out and scenery that is beautiful and full of green continue.
It is Niagara-on-the-lake, the town that is surrounded by that greenery.
To make you feel the old history, large roadside trees grow, and colorful buildings stand crowdedly in a line on both sides of the main street.

The red brick building you can see far away is another classic hotel, Prince of Wales Hotel.
This hotel fascinates you with the design that reminds you of medieval Britain.

We should love history, treat nature with care and be proud of beautiful scenery.
In Japan of recent years, such landscape preservation has been called for,
but if values toward old things aren’t reviewed, we may lose it someday.
I think it is important to find highly added value in such things like old things or beautiful things.

We should also make such houses, shouldn’t we?
