NON – Navigator for “Japan’s Legendary Village Described in Folklore & Performing Arts”

“Non” played the part of Navigator for “Japan’s Legendary Village Described in Folklore & Performing Arts”

To celebrate the 110th anniversary of “Tales of Tono 2020”, a video called “Japan’s Legendary Village Described in Folklore & Performing Arts” was produced.

The Tono region that is located in central Iwate is thought of as the spiritual hometown of the Japanese people, with many folklore like legends, fables, and nursery rhymes about the lives of people in ancient times passed down orally and primarily recorded in the “Tales of Tono” by Kunio Yanagita in 1910, and 2020 marked the 110th anniversary of his work.

The video describes the spirit of the Japanese people, passed down by the Tono people. The video depicts the original landscape of the Tono village, Sugawara Shrine, and more, projecting the charms of the “Tales of Tono” to the whole world.

Enjoy!
