Starting today, International Business Times will carry a weekly slideshow of images from Asia, offering a visual overview of regional events that have taken place over the past seven days.

These pictures are meant to tell a story themselves and compel deeper reading into the highlighted issues:

This week's slideshow includes:

1. Resistance to nuclear energy in Japan.

2. Flooding, funerals, and fortune in China.

3. Growing security cooperation between the U.S and India.

4. Ethnic troubles in Myanmar.

5. Propaganda and lighthearted play in North Korea.
