Photographer's Note

This is a local shopping street of the Wakaba 2-chome between Shinanomachi Station and Yotuya Station of Tokyo. There are 400 households in this surrounding area. Compared with a single-family dwelling and office, it is an area with many apartment houses. There is a small supermarket in a narrow passage besides a cosmetics store, a meat shop, a general dealer, a laundry, etc in this street. For local residents, it is convenient that a store is near their house and it is convenient. In recent years, it is in the tendency for a local individual store to decline under the influence of advance of a large-scale retail store, in Japan. Low price and the convenience whose bulk purchase is possible at one place are one of causes. However, compared with the former type life style based on movement on foot, the large-scale retail store should care about that an environmental impact is high especially for the old man. This photograph was taken in the evening of a cloudy sky.
