Reality bites

Reality bites, Tokyo
This photo was taken at Asakusa, one of the oldest entertainment spots in Tokyo and now also famous for the sightseeing spot for travelers from other countries. Asakusa has also a big betting office for horse races and the races are popular among, so called, working class. They go to this area to buy some tickets for horse racing every weekend and they earnestly discuss and analyze the races, as economic analysts examine stock price trends. But though I think they all are pretty genius and talented analysts, they seem to be poor at winning.

Apart from this reality, it's a good photograph , Macky.
I would love to see this converted to B$W, it must be a great hidden (well not so) street scene.

You give a cool view of Tokyo. Having never been there I find it rather interesting. I would love to visit Japan sometime soon. My wife has several friends in Japan.
