Streets of Marunouchi 丸の内 #3

Every text or landscape can teach several radically different lessons depending on the questions being asked and no single reading, no matter how original or insightful, is ever exclusive or comprehensive.

Another Marunoichi Torii (鳥居) this time in the more common Shinto/Buddhist style with bright vermilion paint that was hidden down a small ally between large apartment buildings. I crossed paths with this site while looking for a warm vending machine coffee to give me an early evening perk.


  1. This looks like an eerie scene from Kwaidan!

  2. Yea, the photo is more eerie then the actual place, though that in-itself is kinda eerie. Either way I didn't feel welcome enough to ascend the stairs and look around.
