Kanji’s Flat in Tokyo

Posted by – January 2, 2007


Tokyo Love Story, a manga by Fumi Saimon, was adapted into a TV drama in the early ’90s, when it become a great hit in China. I watched this TV drama when I didn’t know what is love between boy and girls. However, I clearly remembered that I could not hold my tears seeing the scene that Rika took the train left earlier than the train he told Kanji that she was going to leave with. After all, they were not able to see each other.

Today, I visited Kanji’s flat in Tokyo after more than 20 years! Located between Meguro and Ebisu, centre tokyo, this apartment has not changed over the decades. Its current tenant or owner is called “Minami”.
