Contest: Photos of Home | Mayumi Oka

January 30, 2012

We're sharing the contest entries from our Photos of Home grad student competition.

Today's photo is from Mayumi Oka, Education. She writes:

I was walking down the street in Tokyo, Japan; one of the world's fastest-paced and the most modernized cities. In the midst of this very money-driven and almost de-humanized city, I found this very traditional Samurai Warrior's armour, which was once a symbol of wealth, pride, and reputation. More than 400 years later, many people in Tokyo are guarded, as if protected by the invisible armour of the Samurai Warriors.
