For this edition of Showa Snap, we take a look at the same area as the one Dave posted, kicking off the series. That area is Yurakucho Crossing, just south of Tokyo Station. where an elevated Shinkanesen embarks from the capital to points south and west. In this photo, taken in 1971, there’s no bullet train on the bridge, but a few cool cars are on the streets. A Nissan Cedric taxi and van in the foreground dart across the intersection, while making a left is a Hakosuka Skyline van. You can almost smell the hydrocarbons in the air!
