Yanaka is a town with many temples and hills. There are little Great Kanto Earthquake and damage in World War II here, and the conventional rows of houses and building are left behind. If it comes down at Nippori Station and you walk in the direction of a Yanaka shopping street, traditional old stores will be seen on both sides of a street. Moreover, the temple is built in some places. I took this photo in front of entrance gate of Nichiren buddist sect "Kyoou-ji". This temple are built in 1655. In entrance gate, there remains the firing back by the new government army at the time of the Ueno war of an end of Edo Period, and it is telling the disturbance of the Meiji Restoration. Moreover, it is interesting that many posters are stuck on the pillar of entrance gate.

You are an attentative but discreet observer of people doing their daily business and you give us a lot of pleasant snapshots of ordinary lives in nice settings. With this photo you set yourself a rather difficult task of combining the dark interior with the light park, but the result is sufficiently good and it's a fine view. Along with the workshops you show us a fine little collection of photos from this town.

The exposure of the photo was not very easy. Nice framing of the temple, and an interesting insight into the daily lives of residents. Very good quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Your pov is good and creative as the view offers great depth and good natural framing within the limited space and inviting the eye to the main attraction. Reasonably sharp, fine clarity, coloring and some exquisite work done here particulaly, I love the fine textured pavement and design in the foreground with wonderful shadows contrasting well against the general scene. A pleasing image although the image size is too small for me! Well taken, Congrats.
