Old Fashioned Delicatessen

Old fashioned delicatessen

An old fashioned delicatessen was doing business

Shot at Okazu Yokocho in Torigoe, Tokyo.

Okazu Yokocho is an old fashioned shopping street. 'Okazu' means 'Side dishes' in Japanese. So many delicatessens stood side by side in this narrow street. It is written in Official Tokyo Travel Guide. Yet I wonder whether it is famous or not. Whenever I visited the shopping district, it was always not crowded. And most of the people came to here seemed to be the locals. In the first place, I wonder whether people buy side dishes far from home.

During walking the street, I found an old fashioned delicatessen selling food boiled in soy sauce. Some articles for sale were displayed in the show window. Every last one might taste nostalgic. This kind of shops became uncommon. I thought it was worth coming here to visit this kind of shops. However, the point was that not all the shops in this street had the old-world flavor like this shop.
