Living among people of different nationalities, I suddenly forget that I am Japanese. Looking at yourself reflected in a mirror, you realize for the first time that you have black hair and black eyes. The further you drift and the more you mix, the more you arrive at a place that allows you to stare hard at yourself, anew. When I look at a heaping pile of suitcases, all I see is a corresponding number of human lives. Why did these people leave the place they were born, in search of some destination? Why did they go on this voyage? I think back on the feelings of these people on the morning of their departure. ”
