Old Shophouses in Meizanbori

Historical shophouses dating back to the Show period in Meizanbori district. Some of the houses have been vacated and the atmosphere is a far cry from back in those days when this district was a major spot for dining and night entertainment. Here, an office worker enters a drinking bar while a mother attends to her child in the background.
