For decades Kuwabara public contributions to photography were as an editor of Photo magazines and in the realm of criticism. From the 1930s until well into the 60s, his own art only saw the public in the occasional photo contest - his vast treasure of negatives remained unprinted. Kuwabara was the first editor to publish the work of a young Nobuyoshi Araki and later it was Araki who saw that Kuwabara's work received the attention it deserved. Today, Kuwabara is seen as one of the world's foremost street photographers.

The sister publication to Kuwabara's Tokyo Showa 11 with a nearly identical design. Mentioned in Kaneko & Vartanian, Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s, pp. 182-187.

Condition: Very Good, with case, original wax paper and includes the two inserts. A unique association copy SIGNED by Kuwabara, dedicated and presented to Yutaka TAKANASHI, famed photographer of Toshi-e and Machi.
