  1. Nice video. I live in the countryside in Japan. There is such mix here of the traditional, the modern, and the very, very ancient. The length of the history of Japan is difficult for me to comprehend. However, I feel as a nation and as a culture they will be fine. This frantic wave of industrialization and economic pursuit that has defined the recent history of this place will probably be looked back on one day as just one more ebb and flow in a very long succession of historical waves. The people of this time will somehow contribute to those who come after them although it will be difficult for them to know how or to take credit for it on an individual level as we are so prone to do. Life goes on despite whatever technological and/or economic trends may be en vogue. I hope I can enjoy the ride.
