(664) And in Tsukudajima (3)

Tsukudajima was a fishing village (its name comes from tsukudani/佃煮 a kind of preserve made of fish and seafood collected right there) and the atmosphere remains even though this is a place literally next to Ginza, one of Tokyo’s most cosmopolitan and expensive areas.

And yes, some people still fish here.

(For a bigger version of this picture both in color and black and white, check my "Japan Arekore" set on Flickr –there you can also find a whole album  with pictures from that day.)
