Grungy Ginza | Exploring the Backstreets

Ginza is to Tokyo, IMHO, what Bond Street is to London: glitzy fashion shops, posh cars, polish and shine.

Head off the main-drag though and you find some of the most amazing backstreets, alleyways and shabby corners. After doing some of the showy, high-end buildings and sites on last week's architecture workshop, we explored what for me is the more interesting side to Ginza.. and headed into those backstreets and alleyways.

This shot is part reflection, part real-world; shot into a window but including part of what was not reflected.
