Hunting with Reverence for Life and Nature

This time, we venture into the forested mountains of Miyazaki Prefecture to meet aspiring hunter Antonia Schult from Germany. Working to help restore the balance between humans and nature and stop wildlife from damaging crops, Antonia and her senior hunters pay respect to every life they take, as according to Japanese hunting philosophy, animals are precious blessings from the gods. We also visit Italian Tommaso Puntelli, a craftsman who's been repairing violins in Tokyo for fourteen years.
