We can often see a deserted house in Obihiro while It is rare to see it in Tokyo. The reason is very simple; Obihiro is a spacious city with less people than Tokyo. If there was a deserted house in Tokyo for some reasons, it would soon be destroyed and the land would be sold to other people to be re-used. Tokyo has no such room to leave a deserted house as is. When I was a child, I would often see a deserted house in Tokyo and we feared it for some rumors such as "there is an old witch living in the house and she will catch us to eat." Now I don't believe such a story and I have nothing to fear about the old house. Sure, it is not a beautiful scenery, but I don't hate it because it reminds me of a nostalgic feeling in my childhood. It is ironical that destroyed nature looks ugly but artificial things destroyed by nature are sometimes artistic.
