The Sacred Island of Okinoshima, Munakata

Okinoshima is an isolated island in the Genkai Sea north of Kyushu. It is part of the Munakata region. Since ancient times the whole island has been an object of worship, and a site of religious rituals. This film documents present-day Okinoshima, which is off-limits to the public, in images that convey the sensation of experiencing the island first-hand.

These include unusual textiles, a civet, and other curiosities brought to Japan by the galleon ships.
