The inside of the Makishi Public Market was deserted. The stores were open, but there were hardly any people walking around the market. As I walked through the market, I came upon a small courtyard. There was no roof, but there were tables and benches. The tables and benches must have been set up so that tired shoppers could take a rest. The parasols on the tables created a tropical atmosphere.

An older woman was seated at one of the several tables. She seemed to be in a gloomy mood. I don't know what put her in such a mood. There were stores around her, displaying clothes and other items, but I couldn't see any shoppers, let alone any shopkeepers. The older woman was sitting by herself in a lonely, unpopulated place.
