A morning in Shinjuku.
To understand Japan, you have to try once to taste the baked sweet potatoes.
Listen to Yakiimo yasan's "yobigoe" (melodious!)

Hi Christian, this is a very interesting photo especially thinking about the current Shinjuku. Last year I visited Tokyo and stayed in a hotel in Shinjuku. It is one of the most crowded but very lively places I have ever seen. Although I visited Japan twice with 12 years interval, I have not experienced Yakiimo but many other Japanese tastes whicha are all very delicious and interesting for me. TFS. Behice.

Interesting picture you made there!
The man and his chariot are "outtimed"like!
Very good dailylife capture.

J'aime beaucoup cette série de photos en noir et blanc. Je suppose que le Japon a bien changé depuis 1967, alors c'est sympa de nous faire partager ces clichés. Cécile.

Kinokuniya was yet closed in this time of the morning,
maybe this Yakiimo was sold not to commuting workers but night workers in Sinjuku or people who played all night long there...
as a common folk scene of Yakiimo, we could see it in residential area, and also can see it there now.
I'll post one old shot of Yakiimo "trade" in your WS post,
