苫小牧/Tomakomai #001

本日からしばらく苫小牧の繁華街の写真をアップしようと思います。

苫小牧は今は石油や車関係の工場があるが、元は王子製紙の町。
明治43年、王子製紙の工場が操業を開始するとともに苫小牧の人口も増加し、それとともに遊郭が出現。
大正、昭和初期にかけて、幸町から海岸に近い浜町にそういった妓楼があったらしい。
これらは現在跡形もなく、ただ住宅街になっている。

戦後、かつての遊郭は「カフェー」に移り、格式ばって花魁と呼ばれた遊女は「女給」となり、錦町から大町一帯にこういった特殊飲食店が広がった(いわゆる赤線)。特に新一條通りは「親不孝通り」とも呼ばれ、ずいぶん賑わったそうだ。

今、新一條通りを歩くと、空き地が目立つ。半分崩れている家屋や、火事の後、処理されずに放置されたと思われる廃墟もあった。
それでも飲み屋の看板はそれなりに残っている(営業していない店も多そうだが)。

そんな感じの場所をX100F片手に小一時間散歩してみた。

Apparently there’s a new Imperial base back in the desert. We couldn’t let that stand while we’re in Altissia (and Gladio might just have a fit if we even thought about letting someone else deal with it).

Which meant driving all day. Again.

And then camping, because Vyv wanted a photo of Insomnia.

the things I do for my friends

Kevin ‘the son of exy’ Day 
 
“Let Riko be King,“ Kevin said, with the exaggerated enunciation of the thoroughly sloshed. "Most coveted, most protected. He’ll sacrifice every piece he has to protect his throne. Whatever. Me?” Kevin gestured again, meaning to indicate himself but too drunk to get his hand higher than his waist. “I’m going to be the deadliest piece on the board.”
“Queen,” Andrew said somewhere behind Neil.

“I believe that Yoongi…intends to take you and force you to use your power in some other way; what he intends to use it for? Well my dear…frankly, I have no idea.”

“But there’s one thing you can be assured of” Taehyung caught everyone’s attention as he kept his eyes fixed on his hands on the table in front of him – his mind swirling with his brother’s face, the face he would once have done anything for. “Whatever he intends to use (Y/N) for…no good will come of it.”
