Another attempt at catching a "slice of life" photo. I took this one while out shopping for supplies for dinner with Ritsuko. I took this shot from the front of a place that sells Japanese style Chinese food, where we got some Gyoza and Subuta to go with dinner. This was also our first break for a little while because we had been busy (the both of us) learning the ropes of an English Teaching business and (me) training at the kindergarten (the English programme runs from May to January so I was getting in a bit of training with the departing teacher).
This area is what I call the old part of town, it is near the Hankyu Nagaoka Tenjin Station, where the streets are narrower and the buildings older compared to the area around the JR Nagaokakyo Station.
