It's been about a year and a half since I started to write a blog Satoyama Chishin on the Kyoto Chishin Web.
And it's been 6 years since I started living in Keihoku.
I have been getting used to living in Satoyama little by little.
And as I'm getting used to it, I gradually become insensitive to its charm.
It's like living in Satoyama becoming normal for me.
However, the past year and a half have been really good for me because I have been able to recognize the charm of Keihoku life, culture, nature and many other things through by keeping daily blogs.
I think, everything in the world is depending on how you see it, you can choose the way to see and once you change the way to see, it will change completely.
There are many challenges in living in Satoyama, but it is fun to overcome them, and there are good things that are hard to get in urban areas but I could get them just by living in Keihoku.
The following is a good point list of what I am getting from Keihoku living.
" Keioku common things by my perspective "
・Rich relationships, lots of interesting friends.
・I get vegetables and venison from neighbors.
・There's farmland I can grow veggies.
・There's something wild edible food around.
・There's nice restaurants.
・I have a large house with low rent.
・There's free parking.
・Close to Nature.
・Life with firewood.
・I have a garage where I can custom my bike.
・kids are OK to make big sounds.
・I can play the guitar in the middle of the night.
・Can go to Kyoto in an hour.
Yes, now I feel I'm very rich.
Of course, city life has a lot of good points, but the countryside good points suit my lifestyle.
If you find "my perspective of Keihoku life" attractive, you may be suitable for living in Keihoku.
Why don't you focus on the things that are around you and remind yourself that you have a rich life? It makes you feel happy. At least that works for me.
This is the last article of Satoyama Chishin blog.
Thank you very much for your interest in this blog.
I would like to make a toast to all and wish you all the best for the health and development of Kyoto Chishin and Keihoku and all of you.
Cheers to Kyoto Chishin!
( the cup I have is a replica of Jomon pottery that was going to throw away I and served it. It's looking cool! Isn't it?)
