Few homes of early foreign Tokyo residents have escaped the ravages of time. This one, built in 1907, belonged to American missionary JM McCaleb. When it was threatened with demolition a few years ago, residents campaigned to save it. The white clapboard building is strangely displaced, time-warped from old America to the hubbub of modern Tokyo.
