So, what you are seeing here are buildings that have filled in the space underneath an elevated train, this is in Japan. One,I think this is cool graphically but, two, this also shows interesting urban development. Everyone knows how pressured the Japanese are for land and I once heard a Japanese film director say how hard it was to find buildings that weren’t neat, perfect, and I have noticed that in many pictures one is presented with Japan as postcard. These are neat but show some interesting retrofitting and a looser more improvised feel to things. Oh and again, very cool picture.
