The Ginza Dori Street was crowded. Many people came here to enjoy shopping. Yet I found a man who didn't come here to do shopping clearly. A Buddhist monk wearing a conical hat was walking in the crowd. An alms bowl was in his left hand and a bell was in his left hand. While chanting a Buddhist sutra, he was walking the busiest street in Tokyo.

Although his Kasaya was easy to notice, most of the pedestrians didn't care about him asking unfortunately. So I worried he could not take in the sufficient amount. During watching, a boy passed by him while watching him curiously.
