Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan, Vol. 2 of 2 free pdf Excerpt from Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan, Vol. 2 of 2 My little two-story house by the Ohashigawa, although dainty as a bird-cage, proved much too small for comfort at the approach of the hot season, - the rooms being scarcely higher than steamship cabins, and so narrow that an ordinary mosquito-net could not be suspended in them. I was sorry to lose the beautiful lake view, but I found it necessary to remove to the northern quarter of the city, into a very quiet street behind the mouldering castle. My new home is a katchiu-yashiki, the ancient residence of some samurai of high rank. It is shut off from the street, or rather roadway, skirting the castle moat by a long, high wall coped with tiles. One ascends to the gateway, which is almost as large as that of a temple court, by a low broad flight of stone steps- and projecting from the wall, to the right of the gate, is a lookout window, heavily barred, like a big wooden cage. Thence, in feudal days, armed retainers kept keen watch on all who passed by, - invisible watch, for the bars are set so closely that a face behind them cannot be seen from the roadway.
