Many empty/abandoned houses in Tokyo — two across from me out in Oyamadai, and here. People die or enter care, and elsewhere-sons-and-daughters do nothing with the asset. During today’s walk — 散歩 — I noticed what appeared to be a real estate guy, taking notes of an under-maintained (empty? soon to be empty?) house. Presume a lot of that is going on, has always gone on.
