An abandoned home usually offers a little more than a bunch of stray cats, dust and sadness. Occasionally, we get to see a glimpse (albeit a mysterious one) into the past -- like this stunning forgotten home of Japanese politician and writer, Mr. H.
According to the blog "Tokyo Times," Mr. H owned this 1928 home, but may not have actually lived in it. It's unclear who occupied the space, but one thing's for sure: At one time, this was a gorgeous home. Sure, the place has cracked walls, broken floors and for some reason, a pair of fake teeth, but by looking at the amazing second floor, round top windows and what's left of the furniture, it's clear to see this home was a place of grandeur. It's just a shame no one really knows much about it.
