ネッティングと足場を通して東京がまだ見えます。光が少なくなって、それに、ベランダの植物がないので寂しい。

Living in a construction site has been strange. There’s less light, there are no plants outside, and there’s a netting between us and the city.

A clan assembles in front of Sky Tree in an Asakusa side street

スカイツリーの前に、人が集まっています。御神輿は時代を通して変わらない儀式なようです。

Alongside the worship of local dieties, who are physically carried through the streets, Tokyo matsuris bring clans together and express group identity with matching jackets. Sky Tree in the background provides a contemporary marker to what feels like a timeless ritual .
