Author’s text from the book

I walked across the Japanese Alps, from the Sea of Japan to the Pacific Ocean.
My satisfaction upon arrival was due to a state of serenity, an internal quiet.
It was as deep as the ocean, spreading gently beyond my internal boundaries.
My senses had been sharpened by the extended time in the mountains, and as I walked I felt grateful even to the smell of the woods.
Faced with the overwhelming beauty of nature in front of me, I had nothing to say but thank you –
To give thanks is a prayer, as well as a point of entry into the ocean of silence.
The world can change completely based on a single point of perception.
(Translated by Yosuke Tanaka and Sawako Nakayasu)
