English translation provided for Naito's short afterword only, main text is untranslated. Naito writes: "In this megalopolis we call "Tokyo I sometimes find here and there dark crater-like spots. RIght below some neon sign there may be a certain darkness that makes me think of the mysteries of the black hole. Perhaps it is there, in that obscurity and mystery, that the real psyche of Tokyo is hidden, and can be discerned. "
