Onomichi Gaudi House

While wandering around Onomichi on the first day, I found a place on the map that I was using called “Onomichi Gaudi House”.  I had no idea what it was and I wanted to find out what it was.  It wasn’t until after I returned to Tokyo that I figured out what it was and wish I had a chance to go inside.

Finding the Onomichi Gaudi House was not very easy.  I had passed it on my first pass and made a bigger effort to find it a second time.  When I did find it, I found that it was nothing more than an old house that looked like it was about to fall apart.  There was a tarp covering part of it and the front door was closed.  There were a few leaflets at the door but I couldn’t read the Japanese well enough to really understand it.  I only took a few pictures before I left.

Gaudi House is actually a very interesting place if they are open.  It is part of a series of houses in Onomichi that an NPO is trying to restore and preserve.  Trying to save some of the older houses in Onomichi is a wonderful thing and I can’t wait to see this project completely finished.  While there is very little information in English, I hope to someday be able to return and learn more about this house and the other houses in the area.
