In the center of busy modern Tokyo are the spacious and tranquil Imperial Palace gardens. Just a stone’s throw from the glitz of Maranouchi, surrounded by the curious, tourists, picnickers and families on a weekend outing lie the weathered ruins of the Edo castle tower, built in 1638. The abstract design of the sloping remnant wall, the angular cut stones and the solitary tree caught my eye. The contrast in texture and color, rough and smooth, old memories and new life led to this simply seen image.
