Sun's Last Rays Basking over Jokake Inn

Here is one last photo of the soft glow of the sun at sunset sending its rays over the hand plastered walls of historic Jokake Inn Bell Towers.

This photo gives you more of a flavor of the size of the 1930s Inn. The photo is taken from the back of the Inn.

Can you imagine what it must have been like to stay in this small historic inn back in the 1930s?

There was very little development in the area. It must have been magnificent in its heyday and full of life. It is beautiful today but does not have the hustle and bustle it would have experienced in its peak.

I love all the angles in this shot and of course, the color is fantastic.

I would have loved to visit it in it's heyday. I can almost feel the noise of music and laughter coming out from it.

This looks like one of the fancy hotels in the old western movies. The shadows are very nice in this shot.

A beautiful and unique building. And it just seems to glow.

Love the angle too and how the sun lights the building.

More than 28,800 times it has been seen by the sun and still its rays will make it shine for furhter 79 years.

Very nice architecture of the historic building. The Sun light is making the building radiant. Good snap.

Once again, just love that warm glow... I can easily imagine the feel of those exterior. I'm kind of happy "hustle and bustle" isn't associated with this meditative place.
