Photographer's Note

Here is the place named "Tsukishima" in Tokyo downdown.
It reclaimed from Tsukishima by using earth and sand from Tokyo Bay. This region remains by an old shop and has left atmosphere yearned while it is in the center of a city. The Meiji era was made an ironworker industry zone here according to the national policy of the wealthy nation and strong army and there were a lot of iron worker's shops. It is an impression such as wooden tenement houses in which it pauses in the alley reborn to the area that an urban smell does overall though the downtown emotion has been left in some places. Moreover, about 70 savory pancake shops("okonomiyaki shops") or more are placing eaves in a line. And, Sumida river flows near the town and the distance where it can walk also to the Tsukiji and Ginza.
I took this photograph last early summer.
