The sun was strong, and shadows were clearly cast on the street surface and on the walls of the buildings in the downtown area of Shimbashi. The entrance to the Japanese restaurant in the photo was also in the shadow. The door was open, but the interior was too dim to see clearly.
There was only an itamae (cook) wearing a apron working in the storefront. He must have been preparing for the opening. There was still some time before the restaurant would open, but itamae seemed to be busy already. Once the restaurant is open, he will probably be even busier.
