Photographer's Note

This is an area with an old atmosphere, though it is the center in Tokyo. The old private houses were pulled down by the Tokyo redevelopment project, the high rise apartment and the multistory office building were instead built, and the surrounding environment has been changed completely by it the whole place along this Sumida River. This Tsukuda district is one of a few places which have left traditional scenery and has sighed like an air pocket. Once, the fishermen took out the ship from here, and they went to Sumida River or Tokyo Bay, and had taken small fish. This name of "food boiled down in soy(佃煮)" which dried the fish and attached sweet taste originates in the name of this town. If we walk along this zone even now, an old private houses stand in a row across a river, few individual stores and a shrine are located in some places. So, here has left the unique space which is not in a busy city.
