Japan had been a country in the midst of prosperous economic development. Japan’s recovery after the War was led by a national drive to become affluent in a bright future based on innovative industrial pioneering. And then came March 11th, 2011. This drive was suddenly faced with a crisis after which nothing would ever be the same again.Since the crisis, have the right choices been made?This movie tries to find answers in Yame-fukushima, population of about 70,000, and with a traditional machiya neighborhood of dwellings, some more than 100 years old.In Yame-fukushima, where people have lived for centuries, about 100 traditional old houses existed. The area is surrounded by a south-to-north-east mountain range that provides good materials. A river running through the mountains provides water. Traditional Japanese paper and lanterns are produced here. Woodwork was also developed, and Butsudan production flourished. Tea farming became popular throughout Japan, and Yame became a leading name in this industry. The machiya houses live seemingly together with those producers and merchants, watching over them protectively.The machiya is today at a crisis point, with regards to its preservation. As the residents grow older the machiya cannot assimilate into modern society, and so its buildings are left as solitary and isolated structures.Should the machiya be preserved? Rebuilt? Or simply be disregarded? Its residents go about their daily lives with these options never far from their minds.If the option of preservation is taken, have the skills required for this been adequately passed down?This movie explores the subtleties of the lives of people in the machiya, and raises questions about the choices for Japan at the mercy of modernization and efficiency after the war.
