Watching Japan Grow Up

Greetings! I've been pretty busy lately, but I noticed something cool the other day. There is a lot of construction in Yokohama, which means walls must go up. One has an art contest of sorts adorning it. These two pics comprise one entry:
Photo one (the 80s?)

Photo two (all grown up):

EDIT: Took a closer look at the wall. Turns out that the artist is 西尾美也 (Yoshinari Nishio) and the the work is named Costume Play.
This has been a mobile post; click the pics to zoom/visit their album


  1. Funny stuff. Japanese love taking photos. Grandma hasn't changed at all.

  2. Very inspiring post and a great idea! I love the way the dad still has the exact same jumper ;)

  3. Yeah the fact that a Japanese person saved a jumper for all that time wouldn`t surprise me! Everything is preserved here!
