A walk around: Hakuraku, Kanagawa

HAKURAKU / 白楽

Hakuraku (not to be confused with Harajuku) is a small neighbourhood not too far from Yokohama on the Toyoko line. Like the majority of the stations I document, its main interest lies in its own anonymity –  a neighbourhood lost in time, made up of one main street heading away from the station, and a covered arcade running parallel to it. Shops and restaurants are largely local and independent, with aging facades and an admittedly gloomy vibe.

Stations such as this are littered right across the Greater Tokyo Area – and indeed all around Japan. I like sharing photos from these places as I want people to question their own perception of what they think Tokyo looks like.
