A life of courage, joy and independence.
I’ve been watching green tea farms become abandoned in Japan for more than a decade. Given enough time the farms will disappear completely into the surrounding natural green. In this video we explore three farms; one operational and two in various states of “rewilding” back to nature.
Here is the link to the canyon hike video “Hike into wildness” referenced in this video: http://youtu.be/AWsDIhQL96k
Welcome to the Abandoned Japan blog. My name is Kurt Bell and I am delighted that you have taken some time to share a little of Japan with me. I’m available on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ as well as at the Sons of Grizzly website and forum. All links are listed below. I look forward to meeting you on-line. Have a great day!

The Path of Wildness is an answer and response to a prescribed way of life which may leave some individuals with a sense that their living is little more than a series of pre-determined, step-like episodes between birth and death. The stages of living between these events: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, parenthood and senior are themselves natural and in accord with the needs of the species and most individuals. Many find their satisfaction in living this course and to these individuals I have little or nothing to say. Others though long for something more; something innate, genetic and seemingly calling. Adventure and change can give a degree of satisfaction and relief yet even these may seem too tame. To those who feel drawn to something beyond the entertainment and stimulation of senses I offer a walk along The Path of Wildness. Don’t bother penciling the event in your schedule, preparing a pack with goodies and supplies or even inviting a friend along, for this experience is along the course of your first inclination and you must surely always go alone.
