Thank you very much FantaXyst. You are doing a such stirling job looking after that all that splendid iconography you have there in your kitbag.

Good Photo! I'm touched by this photo because it has a nostalgic scenery for Japanese. But we often go through life without realizing such a attractive scenery(T_T)

It seems like you and me might be on the same page as far as interest in signs are concerned. Japan and Tokyo especially is such a fertile hunting ground for this kind of capture.

For me the most nostalgic aspects of Japanese life centres around the decaying remnants of Meiji and Taisho architecture you can glimpse in various parts of Japan.
