Photo of the day: Showa murals in Ryogoku

The Showa era murals in the Ryogoku area, a stone's throw from the Edo-Tokyo Museum and the location for the Sumida River Fireworks Festival later this month, are worth a little look all on their own. In their depiction of a serene and innocent Japan, they have enough in common with Hayao Miyazaki's work to make them a minor tourist spot for anyone interested in Japanese manga and anime art. The murals run for about 250 metres along the wall to the southwest of Ryogoku Station.
