Jalan Jalan (98): Some Two-Frames to Show Ba-Spaces in the Neighborhood

*** *** *** *** *** *** In everyday thinking, spaces and places are generally seen as empty vessels where human activity occurs. Digging a bit deeper, we can distinguish spaces from places: places are spaces that have meanings attached... Focusing on the Japanese concept ba – usually translated as ‘place’ – this study recognizes that places imbued with social meaning influence human behavior. Ba takes into account the social context, the nor...

「Tenbun Closing」One Year Anniversary, pt. 2: Tenbun People See the Photo Essay (the subjects become the audience once again)

「Tenbun Closing」One Year Anniversary, pt. 1: Empty Space

March 28, 2020 was Tenbun's last day of business. One year later the location of Tenbun is empty space. The red circles on the floor guide for エルくずは (Elle Kuzuha) show where Tenbun was (lot 5) and that no new shop has opened there. The Norengai is no more (only two shops seem to have a small noren now). This shot was taken at 5:30 PM last Thursday. The renamed エルくずは is no longer a busy and popular corridor like it once was. The demise was likely caused by the refurbishment/gentrification o...

「Eat, Drink, and Stand in Japan」featuring the tachinomiya Tenbun is the cover story for the print version of Anthropology News (November/December 2020)

Also available online: https://www.anthropology-news.org/index.php/2021/01/08/eat-drink-and-stand-in-japan/ My text was severely edited (for brevity and to appeal to a wider audience I suppose) but I think the photos look great! I like the layout in the print version better. Send me an e-mail if you want a pdf copy. The original pitch: In Japan, food is prominent in documentaries, cooking shows, travel shows, variety shows, dramas, manga, anime, books, magazines, blogs, Facebook and Instagra...

Meet Kai - the new dog in the neighborhood (I'm not a dog person but must admit this one can be filed under kawaii...)

The cross roads of this busy pedistrian path has a new attraction - Kai. Kai's self introduction messages have been growing over the last few weeks - this is what it has become. Fast facts: Kai was born in Kyoto but now lives in Osaka with his new family. Please do not feed the dog. Please do not tease the dog. Please play with the dog nicely. Kai wishes everyone a Happy New Year! Kai is looking forward to becoming a good citizen in the neighborhood. Kai has already become popular with ...

Ringing in the New Year 2021 at our neighborhood shrine - COVID 19 interferes with the liminality of the hatsumode ritual

The liminal phase in a rite of transition usually entails a certain ambiguity - a period where the usual norms of daily life are absent. However this year, COVID 19 seems to have affected the hatsumode ritual (the first shrine visit of the year) itself. On a scouting mission on December 31, 2020, my research assistant and I briefly visited two local shrines where preparations were underway or had finished for the usual shrine visit at midnight. This is what we saw at the first site. It is ...
