The Empire State Building for Japan 日本のためにエンパイアステイトビルが!

This photo was taken by my good friend Yukine in New York. Yes, it is the Empire State Building, and it's lit up in red and white for Japan (the colors of the Japanese flag, the Rising Sun.) The Empire State Building is known for its light colors according to the significant occasions. For example, if a prime minister or a president of a nation is visiting NYC it lights up in its nation's colors. If the Yankees or Mets win they show their team colors to celebrate. I was really moved by this gesture. Thank you, New York! You are truly my home.
