Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in the Yokoyama town in Tokyo Chūō-ku. The Edo period was also a merchant town which there is a rice granary of hans and meets Ōshū Kaidō. Now, it is a business district which forms wholesale house towns which have a market all over the country including a metropolitan area, such as clothes, dry-goods clothing, haberdashery miscellaneous goods, various things, and school supplies. A triangle area and it's circumference extended over Chūō-ku and Chiyoda-ku that is the center of Tokyo,and surrounded by the edo-dori, kiyosubashi-dori and yasukuni-dori is the very famous all over Japan as the biggest cash and carry wholesale town in Japan. There are about 300 large and small wholesale stores on the both sides as about 400m in this town. Especially wholesale stores that deal with apparel and dressing goods carry on business lively in a leading fashioned circumstances with the competitive spirits and mutual aid. This wholesale town is the very 〃treasure island of profits〃 for retailing stores. Because the moderate and cheap goods are piled in heaps based on the hard work merchandising and the retailers are able to buy the well-sold goods rapidly and timely. It seems that it deals only with a contractor in principle since the poster which is not sold to an amateur is made the shop front of each store.
