Tanukikoji Shopping Arcade
Starting from the older section of Tanukikoji shopping arcade, the shops are older and there a few people here. Gradually, walking along the arcade the sounds of people and sounds emanating from shop grow louder and louder. The shops becoming newer and my senses are assaulting by the volume of music, announcements and sounds of people. Have the streets become louder? Or do sounds coalesce around places that become popular, accompanying the flow of people and products. (2017/02/28)
