Interesting saw he uses.  The skid works well too.  Thanks for posting.

He was no spring chicken. I'd be doing good to just climb that hill, let alone get chased down the mountain by 1,500 pounds of house logs on a sled! :shocked:

After I watched it I thought to myself "Never thought I'd see that from Japan" .
I think I'm gonna look into that sled for some giggles , I've seen videos with a bigger version from in the alps or germany that were very similar .
The mittens and boots were interesting .

The boots remind me of gaiters with snow packs. Look vaguely like WWII surplus Japanese army boots.

Thanks for the video, quite a thought provoker. Somewhat reminds me of a vid I saw awhile back. It was about making kuksa, then and now. The historic scene was a wily old guy trekking through the winter  forest, pausing to knock off a burl with his axe. Instead of rice straw, his pack and shoes were woven birch back.

I like the asymmetric sled, and the natural form of the "handle" piece. His waraji with extra thick cold proof soles, and the shoulder pads for pack straps(sure have thought of inventing those a few times). Fun to watch.

But why would it not be in Japan? Thanks again!

Snow , growing up all I knew was that Japan being in the Pacific was like Hawaii , sunny and hot .
I know that was not correct but as a school kid I didn't know they had mountains and snow .

I see what you mean. It was a little surprising to me to learn there is still hunting there.
