Kikai's first book of 6x6 square format street-scapes of Tokyo, shot between 1973 - 1997 (although the majority are from the 80s). Even after publishing this book Kikai continued to shoot Tokyo's back streets with his medium format camera and this (generally) more recent work has been collected in the 2007 book Tokyo Mutan/Labyrinthos (on sale here). Though stylistically the books are similar, each remains a distinct book.

There are a couple of short essays and an afterword in Japanese that are not translated into English.

Hardcover. 117 pages, 105 b/w reproductions. Published by Shogakuka,1999.
