The old tofu shop below has appeared on Tokyo Times before, but back then its incredibly large signboard was still proudly intact.
Now why something so impressive is no longer in situ is a mystery. A typhoon did strike the capital around the same time period, so that could have damaged it, or maybe even ripped it off the roof. Who knows? Yet whatever did happen, it has never been put back or restored, and instead, a spot of renovation has taken place. Work that, without the sign as a visual decoy, emphasises just how fantastically skew-whiff everything really is.
😮 I’d so love to see what the room above is like!
You and me both. In fact I’d like to explore the whole building.
Oh man I sure hope that sign has been saved…….
Yeah, it really was something special. Always enjoyed seeing it. Hopefully someone has it stashed away somewhere.
