Photos of Japan: Welcome to the hood

Yamato in the Kanagawa Prefecture might be considered part of greater Tokyo, but there are miles and miles – both figuratively speaking and literally – from down-town Tokyo to this place, my new hood. Located to the west of Tokyo proper, I share these 27 square kilometres with roughly 200,000 other people. This is the working suburbs – and supposedly also a bit of a Yakuza hotspot. I don’t know about the latter, but it’s definitely a bit Tokyo that few tourists ever get to see.
Here are a few pictures – probably the first of many – from my new neighbourhood.
