Rare Dogs and Remote Retreats

On a recent excursion to Minami Boso, I encountered the Shikoku Inu. It is a rare breed of dog known for its prowess in hunting wild boar. This adventure into rural Japan involved an extensive journey. It included a long drive and ferry ride, culminating in a stay at a beautifully renovated cabin. This experience not only highlighted the seclusion and mystery of the region but also showcased the surprising accessibility of such remote beauty. I got a nice glimpse into the less-traveled paths that Japan has to offer.

Nomadic Lifestyle and Artist Hospitality

My life often involves transitioning between various living setups, from urban apartments to rural tents. Interestingly, each of these offers unique insights and experiences. Recently, my travels took me to Mendips in Tachikawa, an innovative crash pad designed specifically for touring artists. This facility is a rare find in Japan, providing clean, comfortable accommodations that greatly support the creative process. It’s an exemplary model of how thoughtful hospitality can profoundly impact artists. I have never found a place that allows artists to recharge and focus on their art.

Diverse Musical Celebrations

The highlight of my recent music engagements was a unique Halloween event at Godz in Shinjuku. Originally planned as a Black Metal showcase, the night evolved into a celebration of Doom. Fortunately, the evening was filled with performances spanning Funeral Doom, Blackened Doom, and Sludge. Refreshingly, the bands demonstrated the diverse musical tastes that thrive in Tokyo’s underground scenes. This event not only brought together various music enthusiasts but also highlighted the flexible and inclusive nature of the city’s music scene.

Cultural Integration and Global Perspectives

One of the standout projects I’ve been involved with recently took place at the Yokomura Ecolodge in Sagamihara. This event was more than just a dinner party; it was a fusion of global culinary techniques. We had local Japanese chefs serving as a microcosm of our approach to integrating global perspectives with local traditions. It showcased our commitment to blending diverse cultural elements to create uniquely memorable experiences.

Inviting Challenges That Push Boundaries

MKUltraman is constantly seeking projects that challenge the conventional and embrace the unknown. Our portfolio ranges from satellite development to intricate cultural festivals, each managed with precision and passion. We don’t just handle projects; we transform them into pioneering successes that redefine what’s possible.
