Matsumoto Buildings

Matsumoto was my first encounter in Japan with pure run down ugliness. I’m not saying Tokyo, Osaka or other big cities don’t have it, but here I was so close to it.
I was never this close to ugly run down buildings as I was here.
Now I know the gloomy weather didn’t help, and I also found tons of really beautiful, funky and FUN architecture in Matsumoto.
Everything wasn’t ugly, but it was definitely having som kind of a ‘pushing presence’ that pulled me in and I had to face it.
