We have Chinatowns in big American cities, you have a "Koreatown" in Tokyo! You have a good quality photo, as usual, with an informative note. TFS.

To western eyes, like myself - I'd never guess the difference, Mikio.
Looks as a vivid and vibrant town scenery, colors and people around gave excelent texture. Fog on high level above buildings, but not to be a great disturbance to the whole.
Have a nice new week,

An excellent street shot full of activity and thks to your in-depth narratives - they are part of social fabric in Japan. Technically the image is of high-quality and well-timed besides being colourful. I think you've got good eye contact - she steals the show as being part of the scene This is hugely enjoyable that you've captured the diversity and expressive image. Well done shot, Congrats.
