Kentaro-san, very kindly suggest me by email to come to pick me up till Aitsuwakamatsu and the first day we meet we went together with Marine, a French woofer, and two friends of kentaro to have lunch and have a bath in a salty water onsen. After my long way coming to this amazing region it was such a great present for my body. The first impression was so good and I couldn’t wait to see the place.
As kentaro usually say this place it s the realization of his ideal. This is a small village in the middle if nature with very few habitants but you can feel it full of life. Kentaro has gave light to this place with his art and it s easy to feel it.
Kentaro and his wife makiko are living a sustainable life growing their own vegetables, rice, using solar energy and they are full of energy. Actually to take care of everything here is needed big amount of energy.
The first 3 o 4 days they were many friends so after work we enjoyed a very nice meals, makiko is lovely and a great cooker, we also make mochi and kentaro has teach us about Japanese manners and we could put on practice with his friends, I think it is very interesting and actually necessary to understand better this culture. A part of it kentaro is making efforts to showing us his lifestyle and philosophy and I think he wants us to give tools to get a rich life like they are living. His example can really help me to remind me, if I forget, that the dreams can be true with efforts. How can have a jomon era museu in his house?
On the other side, Enjoying nature
is unavoidable here is full of flowers, insects, frogs, little rats and wild
monkeys!! Just everywhere you look is full of life, I feel like I m recharging
my batteries to come back to the city fully of gratitude and fresh air to start
