Meihodo

A complex rhythm choreographs sharp movement in contrast to long pauses and soft deep breaths during traditional martial art practice in a hidden place surrounded by nature at the foot of Mount Aso, Meihodo.

A small community who lives there contribute to the preservation of the traditional Japanese Arts and Philosophy through learning and practice. 

In my brief time there I felt embraced by genuinity, discipline and "omotenashi".
