This is kind of scary, like a horrible utilitarian mental asylum from the 1970s, but on the same token, it’s kind of beautiful. It’s a fortress of poetic solitude. Nice!
That’s not uncommon with urban Japanese residences. Most of them are “inward facing” unlike western homes, focusing instead on internal gardens or lightwells.
