When it comes to images of Tokyo, it’s generally the neon and concrete ones that get most attention. And with old buildings being demolished at a frightening pace, more traditional structures are becoming less and less noticeable. But thankfully not non-existent.
Hemmed in between the station and some apartment buildings, I saw this beautiful old house today.
But the title also hints at the new, as there was another building that caught my eye. The preposterously titled, and rather imaginatively deigned, Green Peas pachinko parlour.
Welcome to modern Japan!
