See complete file on Tokyo, Ueno station Kazu was born in Fukushima in 1933, the same year as the Japanese emperor, and his life has always been linked to that of the imperial family. Now his spirit cannot rest and he is condemned to wander through the park that extends next to Ueno station in Tokyo, because that place marked his existence and was the scene of his death. The park was the first thing he saw when he arrived in Tokyo to work as a laborer in the preparations for the 1964 Olympic Games, and it was also there that he ended his days, as one of the many disinherited who inhabit it, traumatized by the tsunami of 2011 and enraged by the announcement of the 2020 Games. Over the years, Kazu has lost all physical sense of the world around him, but his perception is sharper than ever, and hand in hand we pass through the lights and the darkness of Tokyo life.
