From the Family Album - part 1

Taken in Nikko in the early 1960s.


We found these old negatives and are busy scanning them. And Every Sunday we'll show you images of "old" Japan. We hope you'll enjoy these glimpses of the past.

This looks like the Yayoi Festival.


As far as we can tell these are just random kids, not our relatives.




This is a Monochrome Weekend entry. To view more black and white photos visit the Monochrome Blog.

Old photos are always interesting, and these have the added attraction of being totally different for most of us. Thank you.

My wife's family has lived in Nikko a long time. It would be really amazing and lucky if I saw her grandparents or their old house in one of these photos. Their house is right on the main street in Nikko a couple blocks from the train station.
