A man sitting at the stand

There remain still such stands selling only magazines and newspapers near or inside big stations in Tokyo. Such news stands are less in Japan than in other countries. Because newspaper companies in Japan perform the service of delivering each home every morning and most homes used to take some papers. (The Yomiyuri news paper, the most popular newspaper, used to sell more than ten million copies only a day. But now because of Internet's prevalence, the service is becoming unpopular little by little.)

By the way, he looks sleepy because I guess he sits at the stand all the day. I'm also sleepy and it is time to go to bed....zzz

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate that.

I also like your photo today of the man yawning at the newspaper stand.

Newspaper stands inside banks and outside stores used to be popular here too but now the Internet is taking away readers.
