"Places" of all sorts

The garden at Katsura, in Kyoto, is in my terms at once an area, a location, a locale, a place, and several sub-places.

A beautiful town is a place, the right half of that field is a place, the vacuum cleaner has its place in the closet, the children's place is upstairs, the third line on the form is the place for this year's income, and so on.

This place is a location and a site; that locale includes many places and is a place, and so on.

Then many critics say that what we would ordinarily call a place, for instance the mall on the highway, is a "non-place."
