Have you ever heard of that song by Queen, 'I Want to Break Free?' Well, that is kind of what I decided on doing. I quit my job and left my life behind back in England and headed off to Japan for three months with my brother. We planned a trip taking us all over the south of Japan, visiting various cities and working on organic farms. Sounds like your average travelling adventure right? WRONG!
Things are never that simple! And for the two of us our Japanese adventure took us to another place. A place not of this world but inherently joined to our existence. In a land covered in mist, where the natives battle against creatures and monsters alongside a mysterious Samurai and Ninja. This is not a place we want to be, but while we try to stay alive, we begin to lean more and more about the Mist Village and its role which we are so ignorant about back home.
Reflections in the Mist is a unique adventure based on true events entwined with a rich fantasy world. Be intrigued, enthralled and experience the real journey of two brothers discovering Japan.
