Reflections on Life in Tokyo
In both a physical sense and as a metaphor, this reflection image epitomizes life in Tokyo. The modern architecture is representative of leading-edge design in Japan, yet traditional festivals (the red and white lanterns) continue to this day. This scene may seem chaotic, with a crowd of people crossing the street, the festival float, and shoppers entering the shopping mall, but pedestrians somehow maintain their order.
