Bridging the Wisdom of the Land

The Tales of the Land and Culture of Narayama

PROLOGUE

Millennia ago and lightyears away where the mountains and valleys intwine there lies a village, much like a planet. Countless remains have ascended to its earth, enriched its soil and prospered new life. Grasping for the sky with your palms Caressing the earth with your feet From the tidings of the wind, I will carve and sculpt tomorrow’s me. In a place devoid of fire, a light we shall together ignite.

A Tale of a Journey to a Foreign Land

With you, the “traveler”, as the lead Every season, an ethereal tour of two nights and three days opens its doors. For those who seek, gaze upon Awai. Hark back to your inner child for a time Feast upon the scenery Disconnect with the world you left behind From “traveler” to “storyteller” with and within you, the story begins.
