at home

Nakano Broadway is overflowing with stuff

中野ブロードウェイには、たくさんのグッズや店やガラスケースがあります。ここを見ていると、私の家にもっと物がないほうがいいのかなと思います。

So many collectibles, so many shops, and so many rental booths for the micro-sellers. Seeing so much stuff makes me want to edit my possessions at home.

 

The view from the kitchen out to the balcony and the city. A floating sky jungle makes me feel at home.

台所から見えるベランダの庭と都市の景色は、空を流れているジャングルみたいです。植物のおかげで、くつろげます。

Our kitchen has sliding glass doors that open out to the balcony. By early summer, the green curtain and shrubs have filled out, providing some privacy and the feeling of a floating sky jungle. The plants make me feel at home.

Some “downtown” characters form part of the organizing committee

三社祭のまとめ係の人は、下町っぽいです。

These gentlemen look like they’ve participated in the Asakusa sanja matsuri many times before. They seem very much at home in Tokyo’s shitamachi, known for its traditional, Edo-influenced culture.
