This photograph is taken in the temple at which it dropped in on the way home after having seen the row of cherry trees in the place along the route of Sugamo Station and Otsuka Station. This place is being crowded with the old person all the year round. In the approach, the old-man partner's clothing store, dining-room, general dealers, etc. stand in a row. Those all that come for worship are considered to have passed over 70. There is a black Jizo(Ksitigarbha) in the precincts of a temple. There is a legend of curing if its ill part is purified with hand at the place of JIzo. They was performed it along with turn. It seems that faith and superstition are located in the opposite poles with science. However, when it ages, people may have a feeling to lean and attach to something. Moreover, they may find the relief to be in a contemporary ring. The old folks who finished worship talked with the friend on the bench to the courtyard of the precincts of a temple, or sat down calmly alone and were killing time.

It could be the village square of rural France, with elderly pensioners. The picture is very well done and very interesting. He might blow details very clear. Light and natural colors are superb. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Hello Mikio,the title is very appropriate as the people on the bench are sitting most comfortably.
A very charming shot that is well composed with pleasant colours.
Best wishes Les.

the scenery is special and unique of the people in your place. The moment and intense concentration of the elderly people is well felt.
Exciting people shot.

Toutes ces personnes d'un âge certain (proche du mien -))sont tournées vers le soleil, en espérant quelques ultimes bienfaits. Une très belle scène de vie (?)

Another lovely shot dear Mikio.Your cherry blossom gathering showed mainly young people, here we have the elders enjoying the sunshine and maybe a chat. An honest and well composed photo showing life as is in the big city. A very informative note.Best wishes. Klaudio.

Lovely photo of the local "parliament".
Mostly senior citizens employ the image space, but I can see some younger men sit on the banchs, enjoy the sunny day.
Not much of talking there - unlike in my place, where chattering is a common behaviur.
Fine taken, interesting note about the temple.
