The man, Shibuya (渋谷)

This mysterious man has been doing this around Tokyo for years. He appears suddenly, always wearing the same outfit, strikes this exact pose, dons a strained grimace, and stands motionless for twenty minutes. Then as suddenly as he appeared he vanishes without saying a word. I’m beginning to think he’s an apparition, or a mere figment; an urban hallucination symptomatic of too much street photography.

I simply call him ‘the man’.
