「生きることの本質って何なんだろう?」 と自問するようになりました。




The events of March 11, 2011 completely changed our values and the way we see things. It seems people are reconsidering their lifestyles, shifting the focus of happiness away from financial gains to feeling a connection with nature and with other people.

One couple moved to Sagamiko in Kanagawa Prefecture to restart what was once a metropolitan lifestyle. Their new lifestyle would be half agriculture and half unknown. There is a community now gathering around the couple’s activities such as their natural farm “Odayaka Farm” and vegetable-centric cooking class. Traditional ways have paved this new style of life. Although the community is still small, there is great excitement in what will begin next. This made me want to deliver their message, their way of seeing things, and their way of thinking to an audience.

A short film: documenting the story of Odayaka-Ya.
