Director Matthew Donaldson spent a day with visionary designer Yohji Yamamoto to produce this short film offering a glimpse into his daily life. Yamamoto takes time everyday to drive his ’80s Nissan Cedric along with his dog Rin to Tokyo’s Aoyama Cemetery, whereupon they take a short walk together and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere amongst the vast assortment of tombstones, situated in the middle of the city and not far from his flagship store and studio.

Watch the short above for Yamamoto’s meditations on driving and his accomplishments in life.
