_  Tokyo brims with a stark juxtaposition between old and new. While some cities struggle to find a balance between such polar opposite yet perpetual traits, Tokyoites harmonise the two. While a girl in a kimono playing on her phone is hardly a rare sight in Tokyo, to me it personifies this beautiful marriage between the past and present. It simultaneously reflects a respect for tradition and a curiosity for the future.  _  Karan Singh is an artist and illustrator based in Tokyo.  _    www.madebykaran.com      @madebykaran
