SHOWA SNAP: A daruma Celica under Mt Fuji


So far Showa Snaps have only taken a look at cityscapes. Today’s ventures far out into the stretches between Japan’s major metropolitan areas. This stretch of pristine expressway is most likely between Tokyo and Nagoya, which passes beneath the shadow a snow-capped of Mt Fuji.

As luck would have it, a lone driver in a Toyota Celica passed by just as the photo was snapped, preserving the coupe’s newness for all of eternity.

Who knows where the car may be now. Preserved by its original owner, purchased by another and modified into a street machine, or dissolved into red dust that floated away on a breeze molecule by molecule? Perhaps there is a little bit of that Celica in all of us.
