Osaka Ali was visiting the old neighborhood one afternoon in Saitama and while waiting for the next bus, spotted this brightly colored lantern. Wanting to see what it looked like when it was illuminated, he returned one evening to see the colors vividly come to life. The loud colors and dynamic imagery fit better with the cacophony of sounds that emanated out of the clubs and izakaya nearby at night more than it did the sleepy train depot across the street that operated by day. Kanto is full of charms like this one.
