21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

The photo shows the interior of a room in a traditional Japanese hotel (ryokan), characterized by the typical natural fiber floor (tatami). The light reflecting on the green walls makes the whole room green, the atmosphere seems like that of an 80's movie set, with an old telephone and a vintage tea set.
