As you may have gathered from earlier posts, the Blackbirds love visiting Japan.
And we know we are not the only ones that this mystical place has touched. To get a real sense of the 'wonderment' that you experience there, check out this awesome short film by Mattias Evangelista. It pretty much sums it all up perfectly.
Mattias Evangelista - I've spent the last two January's skiing and traveling in Japan. This is a place unlike any other. A place where old meets new, where tradition clashes with modernization and where beauty meets chaos. What's left is a culture so rich and diverse you have to see it to believe it.
This is Japan.
