While walking through the streets of Nezu, I found an old-fashioned mounter's shop. The entrance was not an automatic door, but a traditional sliding door, of course. There may have been many shops with this kind of atmosphere in the past, but these days they are rare.
There was a well-written paper on the door with the words "Hyogu" on the right and "Byobu" on the left. There are more and more households without tatami mats, but there must be very few houses that have both folding screens nowadays. Unfortunately, I can't help but feel that Japanese houses are not so popular nowadays. I certainly prefer wood flooring to tatami mats, too.
