Home for Me Is Wherever My Mom Is — Manako Tamura

“Home for me is wherever my mom is. My family right now is all over the world. My dad is in New Mexico, my sister is in Tokyo, my mom just moved back to Japan permanently and I am in New York. It’s been this way for the past few years so whenever we have an event in the house, whether it’s a holiday or a birthday, we all gravitate towards her to be together. It’s not really about the place anymore for me but more about her presence.”
