Self-employed Koichi San has been selling little electrical items to thousands of Akihabara clients from the same modest place for 43 years.

He has a place in the history of Tokyo. He has a place in Japanese history. And now… the end is here; like much of Japan, he’s finally hit retirement age and is leaving for the countryside.
