Hiroshi Yoshida (Japan)

1. At 40, Yuusai Sakai became a monk at the Hieizan Enryakuji Temple in the Imuro Valley near Mount Hiei. Now, aged 62, his spiritual training still involves 2000 days of continuous walking over mountain paths, covering - under pain of death - a mandatory 85 kilometres a day. A hundred of these days are spent walking around the city of Kyoto and the 17-year-old student who made this video follows the monk, studying him with the camera.
