I was walking through Southern Terrace and was struck by this man in a dark yukata. I love how his fan is neatly tucked into his obi. He seemed to be parading around without an audience, so I obliged by taking his photograph. I love the contrast between his retro-cool outfit and the modern city around him: construction workers and clearance sales. I love the mix of old and new, stylish and mundane.
Awesome photo – also the one of the salaryman below 🙂
I told you that you needed a contrasting obi.
There are many flashy yukatas and young people wearing them in a way that shows a lot of skin. At my age, this look would be comical, at best.
that is just awesome !!!
He was so eager for attention that I felt obligated to photograph.
Hehe, I love how he’s just strutting like he owns the place. Nice shot.
