View from in front of the South Korean ambassador's residence next door.

How ironic. To quote from the Wikipedia entry on Lewisite, "Recently, mid 2006, it has been revealed in the world news media that China and Japan are still jointly cleaning up Japan's buried World War II stock of Lewisite in northeastern China. Japan is well behind on its commitment to clean up the site. Residents of China have died over the past twenty years from accidental exposure to the toxin."

Its actually the Korean Ambassador's residence.

Some believe there is another burial pit on the Korean property.

The previous owners suffered unusual health conditions consistant with chemical warfare agent exposure.

Thank you, Zach. I will edit the incorrectly labeled photos immediately.
