Principal-investigator François Penz and research associate Janina Schupp explored various areas of the city, from modern to more traditional neighborhoods.

On Tsukishima and Tsukuda, they took part in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony led by Kie Miyamoto and explored backstreets and traditional dwellings guided by colleague Kumiko Kiuchi from the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
