Nagata Streets : Tobacco & A Manga

Next few posts are going to be from around the area I currently call home, Nagata. The area is a mix of residential and industrial landscapes, and as I have previously mentioned a great deal of this part of Kōbe was destroyed in the 1995 earthquake, which also makes Nagata a mixture of old and new architecture. This series will concentrate mostly on the older areas of town, that survived the quake but now face the economic hardships of modernization and a city that has lost much of its influence as a busy international port. Here is a fellow taking, what I assume is a much deserved, break outside a small metal working factory.
