On the down-escalator at Parco Kichijoji, a young man in sunglasses is reading a book. I fail several times on the switchbacks to catch the title. For the sake of the story, let’s say it was a book of beat poetry. Reading a book on an escalator might seem unusual, but in a city like Tokyo it’s conceivable that a journey by escalator might take longer than one by train.

Interiors is a collection of small observations and minor embarrassments I made or suffered while moving through public spaces in Tokyo. I may add to it from time to time, so be sure to keep refreshing the page.
