Tokyo, Japan

But then the man said, “Tokyo is bigger than Kumamoto. And Japan is bigger than Tokyo. And even bigger than Japan…” He paused and looked at Sanshiro, who was listening intently now. “Even bigger than Japan is the inside of your head. Don’t ever surrender yourselfーnot to Japan, not to anything, You may think that what you’re doing is for the sake of the nation, but let something take possession of you like that, and all you do is bring it down.”

from Soseki Natsume “Sanshiro” (Translated by Jay Rubin)

Tokyo, Japan in March, 2014.
