消えつつある池袋の横丁 / attractive alleys are disappearing from Ikebukuro,metropolitan city

( 栄町通りから一枚抜粋)


























Ikebukuro is a commercial and entertainment district in Toshima, Tokyo, Japan.
Several shops, restaurants, and enormous department stores are located within city limits.
At the center of Ikebukuro is the train and subway station,and is the second busiest station in Japan, second only to Shinjuku Station.
The other hand, there are some alleys,along which small pubs and bars jostle each other.
These alleys come from the black markets at end of the Pacific War to the postwar chaotic times.
But in the last ten years,attractive alleys are disappearing from Ikebukuro.
