This is one corner in Shinjuku Golden Gai. Shinjuku Golden Gai is a bar/snack district in 1-chome, Kabukichō, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo. Hanazono shrine was adjoined and the store of the wooden terraced house built at the postwar years is located in a line like a matchbox across the narrow alley. Here also are known well as the place in which the movie and the theater persons concerned, the writer, and the journalist gather mostly. In early times of postwar, the black market which suited the Shinjuku Station east gate from the first is a cause. It has transferred to this place that was the land along a Tokyo streetcar those days as substitute land at the time of Tokyo removing the black market in front of a station around 1950. Inside of bar/snack is as narrow as 10 m2 - 15 m2, and if several customers are sitting in a line with a counter, it will become no vacancy. In this area of about 50 m2, the bar and snacks of 200 or more are still crowding and do business. This photograph was taken around 4:00 p.m. before the business of a store.

Another very interesting street view and also interesting complementary pictures. I am surprised to see all these signs with western letters, but the map is quite difficult to interpret. Many details to study here!

You did a nice job with a picture of a complete mess of cables and teaching. This is well documented. I love your picture.
Good weekend of France.

Another colourful photo with plenty of details. One can sit longer and study the interesting content. Very well compressed photo. The tight crop is excellent choice, the light is very nice and the colors well balance. Very good focusing.
Very well done.

Fine depth onto the narrow alley, Mikio, with the vivid tones of the multi-signs scenery.
Good details collected, sharpness and light well done.
Have a nice new week,

A scene almost like a compressed perspective viewed from this shooting point revealing the narrow street and the many eye catching signs stealing the eye. There's lot more details to enjoy with the bg yellow wall naturally increases the depth. Indeed a rewarding shot so well exposed. You did a great work here, Splendid shot.
