Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in Iwamotochō of Tokyo Chiyoda-ku. This circumference has strong character as a business district, and the small and medium-sized enterprises of the office building centering on a fiber-related company have become an area seen mostly. The old building of the individual store who impresses the Showa retro in one corner surrounded by the large and small building was located in one corner which faced as Showa street. The first floor seems to be store, and the second floor seems to the dwelling. When it's judged from the signboard of the store, it is a store managing the uniform or working clothes. And, when it sees from the facade of this building, it is visible to the building built in early stages of Showa(19261989). There are still remaining, such an old building in the downtown area of Tokyo. I feel the nostalgia of a time, although it will be pulled down someday.
By the way, this series is ended in this time.
