I took a walk from Nippori to Asakusa after a long time. It is a range belonging to the downtown area in Tokyo, and the atmosphere of the urban culture of the Edo period still remains this whole place. Besides a private house, a small store and office stand in a row crowdedly, and it is crowded with them. There are also many private houses where the flowerpot is placed in front of the house, and it gives an air. And, when an old shrine is located in some places of a town and the explanation is read, it becomes study and is interesting. The mainstream of the tradition of the culture of Tokyo takes hold on the downtown area including this whole place, and is not the uptown around Shinjuku and the Shibuya surrounding area of a new residential area which were developed as a saucer since rural residents flowed into the city at post war. Stores, such as a cloth wholesale store, a hardware wholesale store, tableware, and a toy, divide a place into a downtown area for whether they are the vestiges of the Edo period, and it is dotted. These days, Tokyo Sky Tree was completed at the place contiguous to the head office of TOBU RAILWAY near Asakusa as one of the Tokyo new sightseeing spot. Individually, a design is not liking. When I considered as a scene of a town, we will feel for some minerals because most roads of the Tokyo urban areas are paved as well as other big cities. This photograph is taken in Asakusa 5-chome of Taito-ku. That the electric wire is crowded may look rare to foreigners.

il y a de l'électricité dans l'air, que de câbles !! Cela ne joue sûrement pas pour l'esthétique de cette rue. Une photo nette et un bon rendu des lumières faibles pas facilement exploitables.

This is another beautiful capture of the street with featured human interest in the frame. Good lighting and well exposed details. The Cris-crossing cables above the ground is amazing.
Thanks and have a wonderful weekend.

Very beautiful view of everyday life in a Tokyo neighborhood. Close touch with the people of Japan at this picture for me is worth.
Thanks to my gallery

What a beautiful street view, amazing that the narrow street is full with wires, old buildings and bicycles, lively shot with captured some passing people, nice city view under soft sunlight, distinct image, well done.

Great street scene from one of the narrow streets in this town. But I love the environment, the light shadows, the gritty surround of the buildings, the overhead power lines all add up to make this spot attractive. Composition is really great, framing the walker really well and leads the eye in with good range of tones. Really evocative shot, a wonderful insight and you have successfully conveyed the feel of this remarkable place. So for me that is a win. Well done

I must say that i really enjoy your series of street photography.
it gives us a glimpse into the Japanese lifestyle, a lifestyle that is somehow kept in secret - or at least it seems that way :)
the wires and poles add character to the scene, i enjoy this very much.
