I Got Something to Sell You

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Suwara is a little town in the country side of Chiba which was once a bustling merchant town.  Now it is quiet with most of the buildings dating from the Meiji Era.

Shibamata: Wood and Grass

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Shibamata is home to the serial movie character of Tora san.

The elderly wandering salesman who traveled the width and breath of Japan.

It is now known as a good spot to see some old part of Tokyo.

Wandering Shibamata’s streets, riverside, and sidewalks on a perfect summer afternoon, I was

listening with my eyes to see what I can hear.  The cicadas were singing the kids were coming home

from their first day back at school, and I just wandered.
