One day, alone

 

Looking at the sky

    Finding nothing

    I feel happy

    I am joy

 

Translated from the Japanese poetry book
Otohime kara Urashima taro ni Tsugu by Naomi Otsubo.

 

 (和訳)

      ある日ひとり

            空を  見上げる

            何もないので

            うれしくなってしまう

            私は 歓び

       詩集「乙姫から浦島太郎に告ぐ」by 大坪奈保美

Kasai Rinkai Park

Kasai Rinkai Park is on Tokyo Bay. It is an artificial island built to preserve the natural habitat of Tokyo bay destroyed by development. The bridge in in the background is the main highway that connects Tokyo with Chiba, Tokyo Disneyland, and Narita International Airport. The loudspeakers on the post warn people of approaching tsunamis. This image is from our book Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, Emptiness: Tokyo Landscape. Click on the image for a larger view.
