This video (totaling 6:18) is a synopsis of my recent visit to the city of Kumamoto, Japan. Kumamoto, Japan is a city that lives 'within its own mind' - unaffected by the peer pressures and expectations of other cities. Their commitment to cleanliness, solar power and Kumamon (their cartoon mascot) is covered in this video. Enjoy!
