The Home of Namahage

なまはげの古里

For long years, the Namahage have been believed to be the incarnations of deities in Oga, Akita. On New Year’s Eve, they descend from the sacred mountains and visit house-to-house to warn children against misconducts crying "any bad kids?" At the same time, they give blessings to the residents. In 2018, the Namahage culture was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list as a part of the "Raiho-shin, ritual visits of deities in masks and costumes."
Why was the Namahage born in Oga? Why did people value and inherit the Namahage tradition for long years? There are hints in the severe climate of the Oga peninsula and the way to make Namahage masks and costumes. Let's explore answers in the day-to-day life of the people who live there.

Remarks: Formosan and Korean are available only in narration. All the subtitles are in Japanese.

Koi Whisperer -NISHIKIGOI-

錦鯉の古里

Yamakoshi, this is the place where nishikigoi originally came from.
This is a documentary of Koi farmers in Yamakoshi.
The rice paddies overflow with water from the freshly melted snow,
as do the wild ponds in which nishikigoi are raised.
The hills and valleys overflow with water and greenery.
May is an important month in the cultivation of nishikigoi.
It's when the koi are released into the ponds.
Shintarou Koi Farm has been raising nishikigoi for fifty years.
Even in summer, they'll feed them and check water quality every day.
"They'll also have busy days hatching and choosing from the young fish.
Yet it is fall they look forward to.
What people want from nishikigoi is to watch them slowly swimming around.
So the bigger they are, the more fun it is to watch them swimming through
a pond. Also making their bodies bigger makes their colors more vivid.

The Leader

领导人

Corporate and organization leaders are said to be loners.
They also seem to be unapproachable.
However, we want to know more about them, about goals they set, and how they tackle difficult decisions.
“The Leader” features a leader each time, and the documentary reveals a side of them never seen in public. Topics are not limited to their confidence and pride. They talk about skills needed in leading an organization, how they maintain their health, their hobbies, what they read, their thoughts on child rearing, nostalgic locations, turning points in their lives, the follies of youth, and things they love with all their heart.

人们都说,企业和组织的社长永远都是孤独的。
每位社长都有难以接近的氛围。
但是,我们希望可以听到一直追寻新目标和作出重要决断的社长心声。
记录片【领导人】是一个每次以一位社长为中心,介绍社长日常生活真面孔的节目。
此节目是以一位代表节目【脸面】的高井美纪播音员,直接和社长见面一起去倍受关注的店,一起边吃饭边聊,或者在倍受关注的地方,悄悄地体验社长的兴趣爱好和聊天。主要交流听取各种各样的趣闻,比如以前作为公司员工时的秘密,人生的梦想,对公司和组织的思绪------,介绍不为人知的社长形象,描写企业和组织的魅力和未来。
