Tokyo High Tide is a captivating portrayal of a changing Tokyo illuminating various issues facing Japan prior the 2020 Sommer Olympics like environmental destruction, aging of the society, poverty, etc. through the daily life of a homeless man in his mid-80’s. His home for more than 10 years is a hut at the tidal flats of the Tama River, where he takes care of abandoned cats, earning a living by collecting clams with his bare hands. By also looking into his at times turbulent life before settling down at the tidal flats once senses the passing of the time into a rapidly changing environment. (GINMAKU 2023)
