Knock on the door of your curiosity!
When you’re walking around the city, small and narrow spaces have a unique ability to ignite your curiosity.
The sparks are hard to spot if you’re not paying attention:
It could be a tiny, detailed design, something out of sorts in an otherwise well-ordered space, an unusual combination, a surprising development—you never know.
In the backstreets of Tokyo, nostalgic and surprising discoveries or encounters await you.
