Under the spell of Niigata

I cannot shake the rapture of our trip to Niigata last year. I was deeply moved by the way that people live.















When I tire of urban life...I will head for the countryside. Deep down inside me, I will always be a country girl. I want a mango farm.

  1. The Japan of my childhood - my grandparents lived in the Kansai, and this reminds me of their home!

  5. I think I too am not much of a city person, but more like a village person? A mango farm! Sounds like hard work!

  8. I think we like the countryside because we grew up playing in the dirt, rolling in grass and climbing trees.
    Niigata reminds me of My Neighbour Totoro.
