Next to the Shimo-Kitazawa station I noticed this cool poster of the Japanese “chiptune” band YMCK. It displays a pretty accurate depiction the Shimo-Kitazawa station and the surrounding area, illustrated in cute computer/video game design. The railroad crossing on the right side really is one of the bottlenecks for traffic here, and occasionally it can take quite some time until you will be able to cross the tracks in rush hour train schedule. Since this neighborhood is a center for the more alternative music styles, I guess it is a pretty neat idea to advertise here with a custom-made banner.
