Kabukichō is a famous pleasure quarter in western Tokyo, overflowing with shops selling porn and all manner of other services. Within all this is a small park for children, Shinjuku Park. There in the park, bathed in garish neon lights surrounding it, Shiro Masuyama places a small box with a peep hole, and uses several hidden cameras to record the people who stop to have a look. What those who look inside the box see is nothing other than their own image, as seen from the hidden cameras at various angles.
