Whoa Ben, don't let the younger Japanese know you're listening to this! You'll really show your age!
When I was a boy my favorite Japanese song, TV show, and character was this song from "Kogarashi Monjiro", about a solitary, masterless samurai who wandered the country righting wrongs. Even today I wish I could emulate his walking style and find inspiration in the clothing he wears. His kit makes our ultralight kit look positively fidgety. His walking equipment is historically correct, and designed for walking in the heat and heavy rains of Japan.
