Photographer's Note

A pachinko parlour is at left. This is a type of Japanese pinball machine, crossed with a slot machine. But here I liked the splashes of color, contrasting against the bleak urban landscape. The perspective caught my eye too. From Wikitravel:

"Nagoya is Japan's fourth-largest city after Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka and one of the nation's major economic centers. In terms of manufacturing, as home to automaking giants Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi Motors, Nagoya is to Japan what Detroit is to the United States — which, along with being completely flattened during World War II, also explains why it's not one of Japan's top tourist draws and most tourists just zip through on the bullet train on their way between Tokyo and Kyoto. But if you do decide to stick around, there are plenty of car-related attractions, a restored castle, an ancient shrine and surprisingly happening nightlife."
