Tokyo’s busy, neon lit areas, are without a doubt fascinating places to wander around, but arguably, their older, less congested cousins, are even more interesting — or at the very least have more character.
Places where the old and new sit comfortably side by side, and tradition is never far away. Like this old rice cracker shop.
A building that undoubtedly shows its age.
As does the work that goes on in its dark interior. The continued practice of tried and trusted techniques that, possibly just like the business itself, have been passed down the generations.
All of which, needless to say, is wonderfully present in the product.
