Zen-ei Nakamura, a fisherman who spent his entire life at sea at home in Motobu..In typical Okinawan style he invited us in, let us sit down, he served us tea, and he told us about his life..At age 89 he's still fishing, he just celebrated his 79th anniversary, he married his high school sweetheart, and he still has a certain passion for life..Then he showed us his muscle..He took us outside to show us the way he fishes. He actually mends his own nets..He's not like typical fishermen around here who fish on big boats. He fishes all by himself.
