上野から浅草橋を歩く / Talking a Walk from Ueno to Asakusabashi


優れない天気の土曜日。ある目的があったので上野まででかけた。用事はすぐに済んでしまった。そのまま上野から帰ることもできたのだが、カメラも持ってきていたことだし、ゆるゆると散歩をしてみることにした。

It was a cloudy Saturday. I went to Ueno for a certain purpose, but I finished it very soon, and I realized I had nothing more to do in the area. I could go back home straight from there, but I had a camera with me, so I decided to take a walk around there.

上野発
I started walking from Ueno
こんな路地は夜の散歩では見逃しがち。
It's easy to overlook this kind of alley in the evening.
子どものとき、不注意から有刺鉄線で足を切ったのを思い出す。
When I was a child, I cut my leg with such a barbed wire.

以前、仲間と夜に訪れた商店街に足を運び、右に行ったり左に行ったり、路地に入ってみたり、また戻ってきたり……。少しずつ南下してたどり着いたのはJR浅草橋駅。気の向くままに普通の街並みを歩くのは、デートには向かないけれど、一人でぼんやり歩くのにはちょうどいい。

I visited shopping streets that I had tried with friends in the evening. I took a right turn, and then left. I found an alley with nice atmosphere, and sometimes went back to where I passed. I gradually go south and reached Asakusabashi Station of the JR Sobu Line in the end. It was not good for a date, but perfect for me to walk alone without thinking about my daily busy life.

養分はビールとサイダー?
Are Beer and cider nutritious for plants?
こんな風に髪を染めている人、いるよね。
I know someone who has dyed her hair like this.
あの手押し車は現役か?
Are they still using that cart?
スタバとかマックとかの立体看板に慣れていると、こういうローカルなものはとても新鮮。
I'm used to signs of famous chains such as Starbucks and McDonald's, so a local sign such as that looked so good.
「ネオン」だけに、夜はキラキラ光るのだろうか。
Will the sign glitter in the evening because this place's name is "Neon?"
商売繁盛のカエルの置物。でも、妖怪ウォッチステッカーが供えてある意味は不明。
A flog figure had been placed in the hope for business prosperity. But I'm not sure why Yokai Watch stickers were there. 
ハトと目が合った。
We looked at each other for a while.
ネコは目をそらした。
The cat looked away from me.
ウルトラマンが捨ててある! 空っぽだった…。
I wish those boxes had contained the Ultraman figures.
仲良し。
Good friends.
井戸端会議。
The bins were having a discussion.

I wento the Saemon Bridge to see the end point of the Kanda River.
たまには目的のない旅もいい。Google Photosのアルバムには、もうちょっとほかの写真もあるので、お時間があればぜひ。

There are some more photos in a Google Photos' Album. If you have time, enjoy!
