Concrete is everywhere in japan. Japan pours, by far, more concrete than anywhere else on the planet. One of the few factoids I knew of Japan before I came was that japan was self-sufficient in limestone.
There is an aesthetic to concrete that I call Concrete Wabi sabi.

In Fukuoka City, steps up the ACROS building.
