The scene almost screams Japan. It is another one of those fine moments of contrast that you managed to skilfully capture (and share with the unlucky ones away from Japan).

A lovely find.

Thank you very much! The adds and the kimono, modernity and tradition. :D

'nother one of those classic Japanese juxtapositions of traditional and modern. Always love that.

Really, you could almost draw a parallel between the design sense of the kimono pattern and the clutter of advertisements. There's a near equal relationship of design density and negative space!

it's interesting because despite Japan being associated with elegance and simplicity, there is actually lots of visual clutter. And that visual clutter, which finds its way into design, cities, and even textiles, it definitely very 'Japanese'. It seems as though there are two key aesthetics bound by the underlying concept of harmony and 'wabi-sabi' - transience and imperfection. :D
