Japanese Homes and Their Surroundings

ByEdward S. Morse

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"It is a curious sight to look over a vast city of nearly a million inhabitants, and detect no chimney with its homelike streak of blue smoke. There is of course no church spire, with its usual architectural inanities. With the absence of chimneys and the almost universal use of charcoal for heating purposes, the cities have an atmosphere of remarkable clearness and purity; so clear, indeed, is the atmosphere that one may look over the city and see distinctly revealed the minuter details of the landscape beyond. The great sun-obscuring canopy of smoke and fumes that forever shroud some of our great cities is a feature happily unknown in Japan."
