Note that this photo was taken in one of the most expensive places in Yoyogi in expensive Tokyo, but the environment is a tangled Mass of overhead wires and cables celebrating Japanese worship of clutter and concrete.

    He looked tired in a way that didn’t suggest utter defeat, but also didn’t suggest he was on an upswing. The kind of tired where you just have to sit quietly for a bit and take the time to consider which limb to move next, which finger to flick. The kind of tired that emanates from you so perceptibly that some schmuck standing near you only long enough to snap a few pictures of you can feel it.
