The firsst of these pictures is a little commercial alley in Suginami-ku, near JR Ogikubo Station at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, November 22, 2016. Nothing is open yet. Then the same alley later in the day from the other end. The city is ripe with alleys, extremely narrow spaces between buildings, and cul-de-sacs both commercial and residential. I love little alleys like this.
