Nightfall in a Deserted Japanese Village

Experiencing the true absence of life in a Japanese community nearing the end.

This video is part of a playlist which chronicals my 2011 end-of-year experiences in Japan as the country prepares to ring in the new year on December 31st. For this year I decided to make my way into the deep mountains of central Japan in order to capture the feeling of New Year in the remote farming villages of Shizuoka prefecture. The playlist contains videos uploaded to a number of different channels including NutsAboutJapan, softypapa, AbandonedJapan and this channel.

Here is a link to the playlist:
