This photograph summarizes the life base of the town in which I live. It is extracted from what was photographed over one year centering on Ōji, Takinogawa, Komagome, and Tabata district. Elements required for people to live, such as a main street, a back alley, a shopping center, living accommodation, a school, a park, a regional facility and a transportation etc, are tied organically in daily life.
Brief explanation of each photograph:
1. upper left: Train/Railway track for transportation
2. upper center: Noodle shop/Parking lot for bicycles/Phone box in front of railway staion
3. upper right: Furukawa garden
4. middle left: Bulletin board and schoolchildren
5. middle center(left): Junior high school students going home
6. middle center(right): Wall painting describing student's dream of elementary school
7. middle right: Apartment
8. lower left: Winding back alley

Again you show us a splendid collection of photos. Each one is very well taken and interesting, but again I wish you could instead have used at least some of them as single uploads, so we could enjoy them at a larger size. Especially # 1, 2, 4 and 5 would have done excellently as regular uploads on their own.

Made a good choice by posting the girls photo in the middle, Mikio.
This pic. among the combined 11 shots is the most exceptional - the other's mostly show streets sceneries, trafic, and placers. Fine technical photojob.

I must congratulate you for putting such a great effort and time compiling these pictures and presenting to us. Pictures of various subjects at diff situations, moods and locations, credit too that you are smart to include the stinging red bags as strong lead into whole the pictures. A fine work in archiving this and your vision is appreciated coz one day one of these will change or may look diff or possibly disappear from you neigbourhood. Who knows! Great captures, Congrats
