Wandering City TOKYO homecoming
KINO Hinata [Japan]
The ground of Tokyo is peeled off, flying away, and the city is abandoned by its inhabitants. Kohtaro, who remains living on the site, tells his childhood friend, Misaki, that he will go to see her old house and he begins a journey to the floating islands in the sky. It’s a fantasy in which the author expresses her thoughts on the loss of towns and houses two years after the Great East Japan Earthquake. This work is a complete and edited version of her doujinshi.
