HASHIMOTO - the suburban landscape

I grew up in the suburb of Tokyo, Tama-ku, Kawasaki (20 minutes train ride to the west from Shinjuku). After I came to the U.S., my family sold the house there, and moved to Hashimoto, which is even farther (about one-hour train ride to the west) from Shinjuku.

Mama's morning commute, 5 mimutes bike ride to her work.







One day visit to my home town, Tama-ku, Kawasaki.
