As you continue down Lohas Street from Omotesando, you will find an interesting view of the city with its intricate alleys. There are still narrow streets from the old days, which appeal to those who like to walk in alleys. But alas. This is neither a downtown nor an old town. This is the Omotesando neighborhood, which is one of the most fashionable areas in Tokyo. Walking through the alleys, there are no people with too much time on their hands, and the stores are all fashionable. The alley-like structure is fine, but the town built on top of it is not to my liking.
While wandering through the alley, I came to a small gallery. I peeked inside and saw a work by an artist named AICON on the wall of the small gallery space. It was an interesting illustration that used only lines to represent shades of gray. According to the artist's official website, her work "has attracted attention for its unique world view." A view of the world. A view of the world that seems to be clear, but in fact it is difficult to understand what the artist is trying to say. I felt that I could understand a little how Ozaki Sekaikan (A view of the world in Japanese) felt when he was dissatisfied with the reputation of having a "good worldview" and thought that he would stop being criticized if he called himself Sekaikan, Worldview.
