Real Tokyo

Ah, but this is an endless subject for non-locals!  "What hath become of the Japan of old?" we cry while looking in vain for kimono-clad woman small-stepping down the street.  And I find those things interesting myself, but when you say "Tokyo", the image that comes to mind is basically like this photo... which is fine.  See?  There's the young woman on the next platform... doing... something, and looking good to my male eyes, and to the right is the city-man in a white coat wondering what the foreigner is taking a photo of... and the purple night air in the background suggests adventure.  Yes... this is Tokyo!  The costumes were not the issue in any case - not before, not now, not ever.                                                                 Copyright 2004 - Lyle (Hiroshi) Saxon, Images Through Glass , Tokyo
