Set in Shibuya, this story draws a portrait of a single woman who lives a carefree daily life, talking on the phone, taking baths, sleeping, and going out to bars in the middle of the night. This author uniquely interposes structured and nuanced expressions. With the compact monologs of a single woman, and through the night scenes of Tokyo, this work lets the ow of time in the modern era seem to slip away.
