The market built on the riverside was dim. I thought I have never visited the luminous market in Southeastern Asian countries. And I thought it was not caused by the only lack of reliable power. The local people might be familiarized themselves with the dimness much more than modern Japanese. Once Junichiro Tanizaki, a famous Japanese writer, wrote that the beauty in Japanese architecture was situated among the dimness in his essay 'In Praise of Shadows'. The modern Japanese people, including me, have lost the sense.
Anyway, I walked around the dim passages. The sun came from the roof light windows in spots. And the shade and shadow made the dim market glorified. However, it was commonplace indeed. Nothing special goods were sold there. And a man stood still in his small shop.
