ketika keadaan mengharuskan Kita untuk menangis, tak usah berpura, menangislah. Tak semua airmata berarti lemah

Yumiko Matsui

Matsui Yumiko adalah seorang seniman jepang yang mengkhususkan diri dalam diorama fantastis yang terbuat dari kertas. Salah satunya adalah street dotonbori di osaka:

Dotonbori merupakan salah satu distrik perbelanjaan dan hiburan utama di osaka , dan juga dikenal sebagai tujuan wisata makanan. Ini adalah tujuan wisata populer. Tempat ini terkenal dengan tanda-tanda neon cheesy besar di jalan. Tanda-tanda ini menjadi bagian dari budaya osaka. Jalan dotonbori nampak sibuk di malam hari karena lampu yang begitu terang.

 SUMMER FESTIVAL
 This is collected Summer festival in Japan.
Those booth stands are alive with food shops and game shops at night.
You can see the kid put on a mask he sometime show up around booth in my miniature festival.
Reason why this kid is wearing a mask is because he could be any kids at this festival.
I’d like to express a quasi-experience in this miniature festa to viewers.
