The definitive photographic work on Tokyo's 'shitamachi' (old down-town areas). Although not intended as a documentary this book captures the charm and humanity of the last vestiges of 'Edo-life' in the increasingly concrete jungle of the sprawling metropolis. Takanashi concentrates on the exterior and interior of old houses, showing the jumble and the order of accumulated bits and pieces of daily life resonating warmly in the glow of the afternoon sun. Only one copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
