Narazumono - Ken Takakura (1964) - Nathan Road, Kowloon

After winning his prize, Minami heads over to Nathan Road with his bags of goodies. In fact, this is the section of Nathan Road in front of the Alhambra building. Before the West Kowloon Corridor flyover was built, Gascoigne Road intersected with Nathan Road via a traffic island and that is where Minami is subsequently stopped by a mysterious Japanese woman. As she engages him in conversation we are given a few glimpses of the surrounding area including the previously mentioned Alhambra Building (top image), the former Yau Ma Tei Govt School (second image), the Methodist Church with its minimalist spire (third), and (lastly) the Methodist College with its zig zag roof design.
