School of the Skeleton Teacher

The School of the Skeleton Teacher is located in Yamanashi Prefecture. I went three times, but for some reason, I wasn’t so enthusiastic about this school during that first visit. The second time, I brought three daughters with me: Naomi, Marin and Kaoru. They are Japanese but in reality they are all half (American / Japanese). They made me rediscover the school through a younger and more vibrant eyes. Just have a look at the photos 🙂

The school opened in 1872 but was totally destroyed by a fire in 1900. A new wooden building was then built in 1910. The school closed definitely in 1985 but somehow feel like it hasn’t been abandoned for such a long while.
