Gokanosho: Lost in Time

Gokanosho, a name that does not appear on any map, is a collection of villages in rural Southern Japan that were founded by samurai centuries ago. It has immense natural beauty. But, as in many places, around the world, young people are heading off to the big cities and the area is dying a slow death.
