The Wider Image: Japan builds 'Ethnic Harmony' tribute to indigenous Ainu
Ainu tattooist Mai Hachiya wears a traditional Ainu robe with lipstick drawn around her mouth to recreate traditional tattoos as she looks into a mirror at her apartment in Sapporo, Hokkaido Prefecture, northern Japan, July 2, 2019. Some Ainu worry the new museum complex is mostly meant to burnish Japan's international standing ahead of the Olympics. "I think it's possible it could end up becoming a theme park," said Hachiya. "People would come to see the dancing and other performances. It would be like a zoo." REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "KYUNG-HOON AINU" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
