YAMAGAMI, a minimalist trying to live with very few things, suddenly slips back in time to the Nara period (710-794). He befriends a greedy public servant Ono-no-oyu and, as they en- gage in exquisitely disjointed conversations, they get along quite well. By rediscovering how people lived in the Nara period through the lens of a contemporary minimalist, this comical cross-cultural exchange story affirms the value and joys of simple living.
