Shot in the city of Okachimachi, Tokyo.
I stopped at the traffic light just in front of Okachimachi station. Because the traffic light was red, no one was crossing the street. I could see many pedestrians on the other side of the street. And the entrance of 'Ameya-Yokocho' was also seen there. In the meantime, a bicycle passed by me.
This area was a residential area before WWII. Yet the area was completely destroyed by the air bombing during the war. And many barracks started to do business in this area which be burned to the ground after the war. The open-air market called 'Ameya-Yokocho' is a former black market.
