Heisei Islands - photo haiga

Japan has its own naming of the era. 
Every time a new emperor inaugrates, his era gets a new name. The present era is called Heisei, which means peace settling in and out of Japan.

This is the 28th year of Heisei, and it is ending soon. I had an errand in the city areas the other day, and had chances to photograph a few scenes of the Heisei era.

Heisei era -
no mystery for
a girl on the train

Heisei era -
traditional roles dies hard
in a new family

Heisei era -
no longer wabi-sabi
but "kawaii (cute)"

Heisei era -
gentle demeanour of
a pierced guy
