    You mentioned you had some figures for the houses with gardens. I had a quick look and couldn't see them in the posts. It would be interesting to see them. If I missed them perhaps you could point me...

    What exactly was the reason for your new title of my old thread, Maciamo? It is a very strange angle to take and was never reflective of the discussion in my original thread nor has anyone since...

    I stumbled onto an article in the UNESCO environment centre just up the road and thought it might be interesting to relay it.

    I don't think anyone is denying the fact that concrete is used in natural surroundings like that. But what is the sticky issue is as to whether that necessarily means that Japanese do not appreciate...

    You obviously didn't read that right. Let me try again.

    I don't doubt that the Ardennes are packed with tourists. What I don't understand is why you suggest that places like the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park are not equally packed (proportionately or...
