Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in the temple at which it dropped in on the way home after having seen the row of cherry trees in the place along the route of Sugamo Station and Otsuka Station. This place is being crowded with the old person all the year round. In the approach, the old-man partner's clothing store, dining-room, general dealers, etc. stand in a row. Those all that come for worship are considered to have passed over 70. There is a black Jizo(Ksitigarbha) in the precincts of a temple. There is a legend of curing if its ill part is purified with hand at the place of JIzo. They was performed it along with turn. It seems that faith and superstition are located in the opposite poles with science. However, when it ages, people may have a feeling to lean and attach to something. Moreover, they may find the relief to be in a contemporary ring. The old folks who finished worship talked with the friend on the bench to the courtyard of the precincts of a temple, or sat down calmly alone and were killing time.
