Photographer's Note

The place which has still left the atmosphere of Showa is located in one corner in remarkable Tokyo West Shinjuku a change. It is West Shinjuku 5-chome located in the west side of a skyscraper town. The laundry, the small bar, the sushi shop, etc. are located in a line with the both sides of the narrow winding alley. It is the place which left that retro atmosphere like which the time has stopped for dozens of years. The flowerpots and pet bottles were placed in front of the shop, the shopowner will enjoy the green plant instead of it because maybe there will not be garden in house. And, I could see Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office in the distance from the space of the alley. Someday, this retro area will be again born in redevelopment of skyscraper construction.
