Removed from the crowded bustle of Japan's cities and suburbs, rural families such as the Oikawas continue to practice the occupation of their ancestors: fishing. Through their centuries old songs and dances, they perpetuate many of the oldest and most colorful traditions of Japan and the Iwate prefecture in particular. At the same time, however, modern leaders, such as Mr. Shinohara, vice governor of Iwate Prefecture, strive to implement modern agricultural methods in odrer to increase Japan's self-sufficiency.
