I’m sorry for the lack of updates but I’ve been ill and irritable. A cold and blisters on my feet from breaking in new work shoes.

Anyway, this reminded me of how the Japanese word 下町 (shitamachi) is so far removed from the translation of its characters, down town. This place is kind of shitamachi, but I would never class it as downtown with all the skyscrapers and such, though I guess it’s rather close.
