Sam Mehta's presentation will take a deeper view of Japan -- its influence from the Mainland China shaped foundations of the Japanese culture. However, because of Japan's relative isolation of the archipelago gave rise a very distinct character found nowhere else in the region. Mehta aims to show through his lens and narration, the character of this cultural Galapagos full of contracts between modern and traditional. He hopes to present diversity of the Japanese landscapes, sites, architecture, arts and crafts, costumes, tea ceremony, exotic foods, pop culture, festivals and lingering legacy of Shintoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism that continue to shape the Japanese way of life.
