'Aomori: Out Of This World' - Journeys In Japan (NHK World program), Updated: VOD available until 04-SEP-19

Quoting from the introduction to this video:

Aomori, the northernmost prefecture of Japan's Honshu main island, has a number of enigmatic places that feel a world apart. On Journeys in Japan, poet Arthur Binard explores the area's sacred spots. He passes through more than 200 Torii gates leading to a Shinto shrine, encounters fantastically-shaped giant rocks, and visits a sacred borderline of this life and the afterlife, as well as a temple with 2,000 stone jizo statues. He discovers the mysterious traditions of Aomori.
