Tokyo Post 8.9 Quake, March 11, 2011

8 years ago by in Around the world

Most of these photos were taken from the hip, "street style" so people don’t know photos are being taken, on my walk home from Chuo-ku to Menabi-senju. It was an almost endless sea of people walking beneath the inoperable railway lines. Traffic was at a stand still and it seemed like being on a bicycle or moped would have been the best option. The photos before dark show a unique scene: 4:00 PM on Friday in the heart of Tokyo and the streets are almost traffic free, but the sidewalks are swarmed with business people heading home early.
