Shinjuku cemetery framed by mysterious new construction

新宿二丁目のお寺に、細い6階のビルを建てています。お墓の前には、大きな窓が一つしかありません。使い道は、お葬式かゲイバーではないだろうか。

I am confused by this new 6 story tower at the corner of a cemetery in Nichome. There are few windows, except for this giant floor to ceiling view of the graves on the first floor. Will this become 6 stories of micro-bars? Or is it a new vertical space to perform funerals and ceremonies for the dead?

Framed just right, this Tokyo house looks like it was magically transported from another place and another time

木製の家は田舎らしいですね。実は、これは東京で見つけた廃墟となった家です。

This abandoned house is two houses from my Tokyo apartment. I am always amazed to see that it remains standing.
