Hikifune revisited Tokyo 2003

kyojima 3-44

Street coordinates: Kyojima 3-44.

I've been to this wonderful walking course through old town Hikifune organized by Keio university last year, but when I came back this time, everything was closed, no artworks, no artists around.

Still Hikifune is a very interesting area to visit. It very much lacks hectic and speed of inner Tokyo, yet is more lively and populated than Minami Senju.
