A portable tea ceremony takes place on Mt. Fuji marking the end of this summer's climbing season. In Mie prefecture, Maruyama's terraced rice fields hold 'Inekari-no-tsudoi', their annual get together for the first time in three years. Meanwhile, the filmmaker Masao Adachi plans to make a film centered around Tetsuya Yamagami, the man accused of killing the ex-Prime minister Shinzo Abe and release in time for Abe's state funeral on September 27th. Like Adachi's 1969 documentary AKA Serial Killer, this latest film will lean heavily on landscape: rural, urban, visual and political.
