Thanks for those links, Keiko, very interesting. There was one photo on the meijishowa site that looked like a scene from Jin, the place he used to sit and look over the city.

Interesting blog! That picture is 100 years older than we are, if you have the original copy of that, you can sell it for good. xD It's considered vintage, like super vintage, I guess?

Thank you for the interesting links, Keiko. :-)

Here are some old photos of Asakusa about 1920 which was around the time when Oshin went to Tokyo (Asakusa) during her hair-dressing apprentice days.

Another blogger with old photos of Tokyo during the Showa times making a sort of comparison to modern times.

I love old photos of Japan. I bought some ancient postcards at a temple flea market, and I treasure them. Thanks for the links.
