I’ve been going through some of my photo archives lately. I realize that my photo management has started to get a bit unwieldy lately so I’m hoping to work on figuring out a better organization structure. I was looking back on some memories from Japan in 2010 and I came across this photo. It is probably one of my favorite photos from Japan over the dozen or so trips I have taken there over the last few years. I was walking through Shinjuku with a friend I had met in Japan and we walked past this restaurant. I quickly stopped, turned around, and framed a shot trying to be as inconspicuous as you possibly can with a DSLR.
This is one of the things I love about Tokyo. That even in this huge city you can still find little establishments like this tucked into any available space they can find. This place can seat maybe 12 people if you really tried. Yet they can still manage to stay in business in one of the most expensive areas of one of the most expensive cities in the world.
