Robin Schwalb comments: "It’s a pleasure and a puzzle to experience firsthand how contemporary Japanese culture is layered over the bedrock of ancient traditions. A beckoning cat—a bit of Tokyo street architecture-—is shown against a manhole cover with a cherry blossom and gingko design. The cat strides through a torii gate onto the moss and stones of my favorite Zen garden. And, there’s always a vending machine nearby, offering both refreshment and amusement—Pocari Sweat, anyone?"
