In his time

He is over 90 years old, has lived in Ginza all his life, has watched all the things that has happened in the area. World War II, poverty, economic revitalization, the bubble, post-bubble, the aftermath and effects of the recent quake..., he must have seen everything a man can possibly see in his life. We met him on the street of Ginza while photowalking, and had a little friendly chat before taking some photos of him. He was very energetic, apparently still curious about what is going on out there, and was very, very friendly to us. A person can age the way she/he wants to. It is totally up to us.
