(1273) Buildings and cars (2)


At another Asakusa backstreet in Asakusa -yes, there are Japanese pipe-makers, which is somewhat odd since you rarely see people smoking a pipe in public. The reason, and I've heard that from several Japanese is that probably those who do, do it in the privacy of their homes because if they do it outside it would look as if they are trying to set themselves apart and this is something Japanese society frowns upon.
