Kamuy Mintara, Chiba Prefecture, Greater Tokyo, 2012. Ainu elder Haruzo Urakawa in his home. Kamuy Mintara, meaning `Playground of Gods`, is the traditional Ainu home that 75 years old Haruzo Urakawa built by himself in the mountains outside of Tokyo. Here, he lives as close as possible to the traditional Ainu lifestyle which, as a child in Hokkaido, he had learned from his father. Ainu traditions involve hunting, fishing and gathering, performing daily animistic rituals, and making crafts. As well as being a home, Kamuy Mintara is a meeting place for the dissemination of Ainu culture, which Haruzo Urakawa has been promoting among his own community and beyond since his youth. Haruzo Urakawa is the honorary president of the Tokyo Ainu Association.
