Photographer's Note

Kagurazaka is an elegant neighborhood near Lidabashi station in Shinjuku ward, and is distinguished for its close associations with Tokyo's literary history and culture. From the early days, Kagurazaka was famous as Japan's premier pleasure quarter, or hanamachi (literally "flower town,") with a proliferation of geisha houses. The area's golden age ended with World War II. The remnants of those days remain in the restaurants and kimono and confectionery shops that still have a presence here. An interesting place to stroll around and take in the local scene...I like how the colourful little shops are lighted up...
