This is about a little weird building in Japan.
The building is near [W:Lake Biwa], which is the largest lake in Japan and one of the popular tourist sites.
This is Lake Biwa.
In the blog I read the other day, a unique building found near the lake was shown.
It stands out on a country road.
It is a branch of Japan Agricultural Cooperatives (JA).
It looks like another house added on a building, and like a “portable shrine,” the blogger said.
By the way, this is a portable shrine.
On a side of the building, there seem to be Japanese characters.
Although it is too abstract, it reads “Biwa-ko (Lake Biwa)” in Katakana!?
JA has a lot of branches throughout the country. Since the organization usually gives serious and sober impression to people, I didn’t know it owns such unusual building.
