Not all of Japan is clean. Interestingly enough this was an area devoid of homeless people; I mention this because the homeless in Japan always seemed to be cleaning, sweeping, or doing something constructive.
This was probably a prewar station. I wasn’t able to walk under this underpass without ducking. That being said most Japanese people I met were about my height or taller, with the older generation being shorter. (I am 5’10). This is a really cool memorial. This is where the final battle between the Meiji government and the Shogunate occurred. (A quick history lesson, the Emperor ruled Japan for only a short time before he was ousted by the Shogun, a military leader who kept the imperial family hostage, and ruled using the Emporer as a proxy. During the Meiji Restoration, the Emporer seized power away from the shogunate and ruled until the end of WW2. ) ((PS: Edo = Tokyo))
