Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Wishing to celebrate some particularly unique aspects of Japan and Japanese life before the whole world is inundated by the influence of universal sameness, the makes of this documentary take a cinematic tour of the islands and coastline of the China-facing waters sometimes referred to Japan's Aegean Sea. The journey retraces one taken decades earlier by screenwriter Donald Carrie and described in his book of the same name. This film won "Best Documentary" honors at the 1991 Hawaii International Film Festival.
