English teacher Laura Thomas, who is a British citizen, poses for a picture near a traditional Matryoshka doll made of used tyres near her campus on a day off in the town of Lesosibirsk, north of the Russian Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, April 23, 2015. Thomas, 25, a graduate of the University of Cambridge, developed an interest in the Russian language and culture as a teenager, and left her native town of Congleton, Cheshire in Britain for Lesosibirsk seven months ago to educate Russian trainee teachers in the English language at a local educational institute, a branch of the Siberian Federal University. Thomas has since experienced her first severe Siberian winter and has already made new acquaintances among the local residents. She plans to live and work in the region for at least several years to come. Picture taken April 23, 2015. REUTERS/Ilya Naymushin

A scarecrow lies behind a shed in the village of Nagoro on Shikoku Island in southern Japan February 23, 2015. Tsukimi Ayano made her first scarecrow 13 years ago to frighten off birds pecking at seeds in her garden. The life-sized straw doll resembled her father, so she made more. Today, the tiny village of Nagoro in southern Japan is teeming with Ayano's hand-sewn creations, frozen in time for a tableau that captures the motions of everyday life. Nagoro, like many villages in Japan's countryside, has been hit hard by inhabitants flocking to cities for work and leaving mostly pensioners behind. Its greying community is a microcosm of Japan, whose population has been falling for a decade.

Tsukimi Ayano stands in a classroom with scarecrows at a closed down school in the village of Nagoro on Shikoku Island in southern Japan February 24, 2015. Ayano made her first scarecrow 13 years ago to frighten off birds pecking at seeds in her garden. The life-sized straw doll resembled her father, so she made more. Today, the tiny village of Nagoro in southern Japan is teeming with Ayano's hand-sewn creations, frozen in time for a tableau that captures the motions of everyday life.

Vintage dolls are for sale at a stall at Boroichi flea market in Tokyo
Vintage dolls are for sale at a stall at Boroichi flea market in Tokyo December 15, 2014. In the 16th century, Boroichi was a place for farmers to buy and sell rags, known as boro, for mending clothes and weaving sandals. Now in its 436th year, the original spirit lingers, with about 700 stands hawking fabric, used clothes and piles of rags. Others sell kitchen tools, pottery, seaweed and spices. About 200,000 people flock to the market, which is only open for four mid-winter days a year - two in December and two in January. Picture taken December 15.
