      Recently, Japanese friends sent us a video on DVD which was made with
      Fukuoka when he was 91. I think it has been mentioned here before.
      The last scene shows him sitting in a Tatami room, reading a
      calligraphic text from some sheets of paper. He calls it "I-ro-ha
      kakumei-uta" which I have tentatively rendered as "The ABC of
      Revolution, A Song." It is really more like a series of aphorisms
      arranged according to the Japanese i-ro-ha, which is the traditional
      way of ordering text in Japanese. I don't know if it has already been
      translated, if not, I may have a go at it. After reading the text he
      says that he would have liked to set it to music, but lacked the
      talent for it. He also said that it sums up the gist of his thinking
      from the previous 65 years, i.e., the time from his key experience
      while working at the Yokohama customs as a young man.

        copy? Otherwise, does anybody know of any videos available of Fukuoka
        (other than "The Natural Way of Farming" from Bullfrog Films)?

          Yasha,

          The ISBN is 4-393-97019-5.

          The title is

          Shizen Nouhou
          Fukuoka Masanobu no Sekai

          Price: 2300 Yen.

          It may be of limited interest if you don't understand Japanese. Most
          of the video shows him in a monstrous sort of wooden construction
          built by "the young people" that used to stay at his place. There is
          one shot with him at his rice field and the last is the one I already
          described. There is no action, except for Fukuoka talking.

              Hi Yasha,


              I'm Japanese and I watched this DVD, but I cannot recommend it...
              Of course Mr.Fukuoka is great, but I think this DVD was made for
              this publisher's commercialism or something...
              This DVD has only 30 mins and nearly no story about Natural Farming...

              If you didn't watch another DVD "Masanobu Fukuoka goes to India"
              you much better watch it!
              This DVD has English version and include How to Make Seedballs,
              and the content is all philosophy and Natural Farming.

              You can order from this DVD's director, Koji Imaizumi
              IMAKOJI2@...
              (Because this DVD is just for private publish)

              Though I'm not quite sure if he can read English, but very possibly
              he can read it.
              3,800 Japanese Yen, and you should mention you need DVD in
              English version.


              Good luck,
              Yuho

                  I tried to get the video "Close to Nature" from Bullfrog films, but
                  according to them, they don't sell it outside US or Canada. Is there

                      Hi Cheluvaraj,


                      I ordered the Fukuoka goes to India" DVD from "Koji Imaizumi" and costs  3800 yen. You can contact him at (IMAKOJI2@...).

                      Bullfrog films does not sell the Close to nature DVD outside US.


                      Regards,
                      Nandan

                      I could get the English version of the DVD "Fukuoka goes to India" and



                      it is good !!!.



                      I tried to get the video "Close to Nature" from Bullfrog films, but



                      according to them, they don't sell it outside US or Canada. Is there



                      any other source for this.



                      Regards,



                      Nandan
