The street tailor was working under a colorful parasol in a residential area

I turned aside from the main street and went back into the residential area of Jakarta. I don't know the whole city of Jakarta, but I feel that the width of the streets in this city is extremely different from the main streets. Except for the main street, everything else feels like an alleyway.

As I walked down the street between the walls of dwellings, the street became even narrower as someone put out a large parasol at the end of the already narrow street. Underneath the colorful parasol lay an old sewing machine. It was a street tailor.

By the way, there are many tailors in Jakarta's residential areas. How many tailors have I seen in my travels? Jakarta seems to be a different world from the old Japan, where every household had a sewing machine and mothers did the sewing. It seems to me that sewing is not done at home, but is outsourced to outside parties. That's why I can see sewing machines on the streets here and there when I walk through a residential area.
