FLAVORS OF KYUSHU
Outstanding destinations. Unforgettable memories.
An episode from the series FLAVORS
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.
