Sansei Yamao was born in Tokyo in 1938. He left Waseda University(School ofWestern philosophy) before graduation. In the latter half of the 1960s, he and his companions, Nanao Sakaki and Tetsuo Nagasawa, started a commune called "Buzoku"(tribe), to change society. In 1973, he went on a pilgrimage to India and Nepal with his family for 1 year. After a while he came back to Japan and moved to a ghost village in Yaku Island (located in the southof Japan, and famous for Japanese Joumon cedar which lives for several thousand years) with his family in 1977. He began to build a village at Shirakawa mountain. He has been writing his poetry and prose, and farming his field for over 20 years here. He met his old friend Gary Snyder recently (in spring 1997) in Gary's house in the Sierra Nevadas. In 1966 Sansei had met Gary, who had received his first Zen training in Kyoto. Sansei and Gary traversed Ominesan mountain range, which is known as Shugendou mountain, in Nara together for 1 week. After Gary came back to the USA, and Sansei went to India and then moved to Yaku Island, they have not been in contact with each other for a long time. So Sansei was surprised to know that Gary's recent theme is Bioregionalism, because he had been thinking about very similar things for 20 years. He says, "The earth is just a region, a region is just the earth".
He passed away on 28 August, 2001.
