I can finally share one of the coolest projects I worked on last year – a video commissioned by the Ibusuki/Yakushima tourist board to promote this amazing, undiscovered region in the south of Japan!

In all the years I lived in Japan, I never made it to the southern island of Kyushu. On my return trip this year, it’s where my journey began – in the southernmost prefecture of Kagoshima.

If for any reason you can’t see it on YouTube, the video is also available on Vimeo.

Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island of Yakushima is famous for its ancient forest composed of Japanese cedar known as 屋久杉 (yakusugi).
