Last April, I was visited by Yuichi Takeuchi, an artist, carpenter and treehouse builder from Japan.
Yuichi said he’d been heavily inspired by our book Shelter. He was making a movie called Simplife and wanted to interview me.
Here’s the result, 3 minutes long. In the last part, I say, “I like to tell people what I see going on in the world…” Yeah!
I’ve had a lot of Japanese people come here — media, builders, artists, publishers — in recent years and they’ve all been wonderful — kindred spirits of the Pacific Ocean.
