“Kikuyuu.  On her way to see Mizuekai. When I got the courage to approach her a bit later, I told her quickly (because she was really busy) I had seen her documentary as a shikomi. She smiled, bowed, and thanked me, then headed off.”  October 8, 2010.  Text and photography by Toshiba DrowElfMorwen on Flickr
