Minami-Uonuma: Weaving New Snow Country Tales

Minami-Uonuma in southern Niigata Prefecture is one of Japan's snowiest regions. Suzuki Bokushi's book Hokuetsu-seppu, which describes people's lives there, was published 180 years ago. The book serves as a guide for Australian Jonathan Senior as he explores traditional weaving of a hemp textile, and a wild festival passed down since ancient times, as well as the area's distinctive snow culture.
