The Beehive House

This large lantern is located at the entrance of a very nice house in Otawara, Tochigi-ken. I bet you're wondering why I call this the Beehive House. It's because that's what the sign says. It says Hachisu or Hachinosu which means a beehive. The name of the family that lives at this house is named Hachisu or Hachinosu. Thanks to Takahiro Yamamoto who informed me of that.

  1. For a second I thought you were going to say that this actually was one giant beehive. By the time I could have typed "RUN JON RUN!" it could have been too late. Whew! Luckily for us it wasn't the case. Thanks for keeping us up to date!

  2. Yeah, lucky no bees, but there were a heck of a lot of mosquitoes. Ugh.
