A naked man who lived a life of isolation on a beautiful desert island has been forced to reintegrate into the society he shunned 29 years ago. Ostensibly, he's been forced to wear pants as well, even after spending nearly three decades sans clothing.
Masafumi Nagasaki decamped for the island Sotobanari, on the Yaeyama Islands near Okinawa, Japan in 1989, leaving behind a factory job, his two children and the snare of capitalism. But after a castaway's life of nudity and glorious sunshine, Japanese authorities have finally ordered him to leave his tropical home, owing to his frail condition.
According to News.com.au, Nakasaki's reputation was bolstered by media attention in 2012, which gave rise to his "naked hermit" nickname. Nagasaki is so spiritually tied to his adopted island home, that he'd like to inhabit the glistening sand eternally.
