Visiting My Cousin

19 12 2014

So off I went from Osaka to visit my cousin and her family in Ashiya or, as I learned, on the edge of it.  The address is in Ashiya but the most convenient train station is Shukugawa on Hankyu which is the station I used to use when I was in kindergarden.

The deal with the elevator is that if you park in the garage and enter the house from there, the only way up is to take the elevator which is something installed by the previous owner.  My cousin and her husband bought this house from an old couple.
