One in a series of shorts designed to show what other peoples and cultures are like.

This short (winner of Documentary Short at the Academy awards for 1958) focused on a Japanese village and a fishing method used as a livlihood in Japan. Disney had a series of shorts focusing in on other places and cultures and this is one of the better ones. Most of them were less than thirty minutes long and were cinematically beautiful to watch. They run very sporadically, when they run at all, on the Disney Channel's Vault Disney. *sigh* Disney is sitting on a treasure trove! Recommended.
