Tokyo Story


When I came back to Japan from the States after spending 12 years,
I felt like a foreigner at my motherland.
The capital, Tokyo has become a completely different city from what I remembered.
All the buildings were copied ones from Europe or the States, and
built over the ruins of Japanese style houses. Seeing those buildings rising up,
I overlap myself standing on the dislocated place.
