I am a painter from New York. Growing up, I was exposed to a substantial amount of Japanese culture which subconsciously played a significant role in not only my preferred visual aesthetic, but my entire life. The bulk of my childhood was spent watching Sailor Moon and painting.

DAIBA ITCHOME SHOTENGAI
Aside from purikura, I am not really one for arcades. Unless, of course, we're talking about the retro arcade at Daiba Itchōme Shōtengai in Odaiba. Going to Daiba Itchōme Shōtengai is what I imagine traveling to the past might feel like as (almost) everything here is inspired by the Shōwa era of Japan and the attention to detail is impeccable.

THE NURIE MUSEUM
Possibly the tiniest place of all, The Nurie Museum pays tribute to the work of Kiichi Tsutaya. Visiting this museum is a beautifully intimate experience, as The Nurie Museum utilizes a series of stacked sliding filing cabinets to allow the viewer to carefully inspect Kiichi's work. I came here for the first time shortly after I had first moved to Tokyo and after stepping inside the museum, it felt like I had fallen into a dream.

As a native New Yorker, Tokyo felt like New York's long lost twin, separated at birth but connected by a similar, uncanny energy. After eventually moving to Tokyo, I found that I became less interested in thinking about the similarities and differences and more absorbed in finding elements of what my heart identifies as "home" in both cities. Tokyo taught me that anywhere you feel like you belong, and gives you comfort, can be your home.
