This is the second video in the short documentary series, Through the Lens that I launched with Hurley last year.
 
Back in May, we were at the Greenroom Festival in Japan and I met a really amazing man named Takashi Kobayashi. Taka builds the most incredible treehouses and he went on to tell us about one he was building in Sendai – which is one of the places most affected by the Tsunami. This treehouse was made to create a safe place for the children survivors and help them reconnect with nature in a positive way. The work he's doing is pretty magical and we were just happy to be able to join along. 
 
Japan is a special place to me and with all the uncertainty left in the wake of the Tsunami, I thought it would be cool to shed light on this uplifting story.
