Den-en Coliseum — Ōta, Tokyo by Jun Iwasaki

In the third and final installation of the Tokyo Series by photographer Jun Iwasaki for Palmes, he ventured out to Den-en Tennis Club, one of the most historic tennis venues in Japan. Having hosted international tournaments since it was constructed in 1934, Den-en had a capacity of 10,000 spectators until its closure in 1989.

On the shoot, Iwasaki says: "The Den-en is just around the corner from my house and I always wanted to shoot something there. For this series, it wasn't so much about playing tennis there but more about going there to experience tennis; the feeling of the game. The idea for me is to always convey a narrative, somewhat like reading a novel. On this day, I brought my friends Aiko and Ryo along on a crisp morning. We went for a walk around the neighborhood, ate a stack of pancakes, drank lots of green tea and just took in the scenery of Den-en."
