Finding your way to Japan – LylesBrother

“Hey Kurt,

I really enjoy watching your YouTube videos. You have inspired me and I respect what you do. I hope that I will some day be able to visit or live in Japan and do the same thing. Since I was a kid I’ve always enjoyed the wilderness and nature. Hiking by myself or with a close friend is one of my favorite things to do. It feels like an adventure every time. It feels good to get away from the outside world every now and then.

I’ve been trying to find ways to actually get to Japan for a while but I’m not sure what the best way to do that would be. I’ve looked into education programs, trips with the Japanese Society that’s located near here, travel groups, etc. In your opinion, what would be the best way to travel to Japan? How exactly did you travel to Japan and start a life there?


The Path of WildnessThe Path of Wildness is easy to find
The course of a stream
Leaves blown in the wind
A beast’s track through the brush
And the direction of our first inclination

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.
