Some Tokyo

Roads brushed to a shine and longstanding arcades showing only the necessary degradation.

Ramshackle eateries sharing the roads with humble monoliths of the megacorp grip.

Painted-on sidewalks and ramp slabs filling in the curbs for vending machine wheels.

Coffee-branded vending machines and anime-cutie standees.

Pink-puff girly UFO catchers and sheepish men ducking past to the games.

Heavy raincloud air softening everything and sticking to you.
