Lane In Sangenjaya

Maze-like lane in Sangenjaya

The maze-like lanes still remained in a part of Sangenjaya

Shot in the city of Sangenjaya, Tokyo.

Sangenjaya is located near Shibuya, one of the busiest district in Tokyo. And it is also modestly bustling. There is a subway station and the land price around here is most expensive in Setagaya. Nevertheless, there is a small area which is out of step with the times. The maze-like lanes, which are flanked by old buildings, get entangled in the area. And small restaurants and bars stand side by side. This atmosphere is my favorite.

Entered the lanes. Because it was early afternoon, most of the restaurants and bars were not open yet. The lanes were wrapped by the silence. Walking one of the lanes, a man came from over there.

Unfortunately, a redevelopment program is already underway here. According to the program, the old buildings will be superseded by two tall buildings. This maze-like area is demolished in the near future. And this enchanting atmosphere falls off the edge of the earth forever.
