Tokyoto does not exist
Tokyoto is everywhere
These photographs were taken on a trip to Japan in the Fall of 2008.
While visiting both Tokyo and Kyoto, I found the dichotomy of these cities unsettling because of their deeper relationship. These images attempt to illustrate how they both oppose and coexist with one another.
"When you look at Japanese traditional architecture, you have to look at Japanese culture and its relationship with nature. You can actually live in a harmonious, close contact with nature - this very unique to Japan."
- Tadao Ando
