At a very young age I came across a simple meditation technic focusing on the flame of a candle. It made me realize that I was not that anguished youth that lived my everyday life. I had caught a glimpse of a different future that I began to pursue.
An esoteric grandmaster once said;
"The path is not something that is laid out in front of you, but something that materializes under your feet when you summon the courage to step out into the unknown."
My to begin with, not so courageous steps into the unknown would lead me to Japan and Zen master Moriyama Daigyo Roshi. Thanks to the people I met in "Tokyo Stories" I was able to summon the courage to walk what would become my path.
Tokyo Stories is about being adrift in Tokyo and soul searching in the nineties. Teachings from a Zen master to his student and the unbreakable intimate relationship. The transient life of foreign youth roaming the streets of Tokyo looking for adventures and love. To find peace with yourself no matter of the past you carry with you. What it is like to live under the haunting shadow of the Second World war. Reflections of a traditionel culture as foreign as the Japanese. Shinto, the key to the Japanese mind and what martial arts really teaches if you listen carefully.
