Synopsis

Traveling in contemporary Japan means constantly bouncing between modernity and tradition.

Kyushu, the westernmost island of the archipelago, is a volcanic land where all the inhabitants - artisans, fishermen, farmers or artists - associate a spiritual quest to their daily activities which they wish to protect, preserve and bequeath.

Often consider "Masters" in their fields, we meet Muriyama Tarao, an expert in indigo dyeing; the Soekyu family, and its very fine ceramics, or Hiro Kumamoto, a squid fisherman. They become our guides in the discovery of an ancestral Japan.
