NOTO LANDSCAPE: Late upload. I wonder why anyone would leave rural Japan when you get to see this. It's almost Ghibli-ish and this was just the view from the back of the restaurant.

東根温泉に行くつもりが、間違って「さくらんぼ東根」で下車してしまい…。ふと見ると駅前にレンタサイクルが。
そこで、天気も良いのでプチサイクリングで温泉に向かうプランに急遽計画変更です。

入浴後、西日に照らされたキレイな紅葉の山並に誘われるように畦道へ進むと、決して観光地ではない畦道の真ん中で、済んだ空気と眺めを独占できました。

結果的には「晩秋のレンタサイクル」ではなく「晩秋のレンタル」ができたような、得した気分。駅を間違えるのも悪くありません(笑)。 Accidentally got off the train at Sakuranbo-Higashine station (inatead of Higashine st.), but fortunately there was rental bikes.
Of course I rent one... but I think I did rent not a "bike", but "vivid and colorful late autumn mountains" under the shiny blue sky!

It's not always bad getting off the train at the wrong station:) #ruraljapan

A nature-made tunnel on the ancient Nakasendo trail. —————-
RETREAT STATUS:
Purchasing art. Part of the house was used to house cows as well and when we stripped a part of the wall, the structure of the ancient cow shed became exposed. So I purchased a powerful monotone abstract piece with a powerful 4-legged animal moving forward in the woods. Another is a statue of a calm and gentle cow.
Tentative opening date: summer 2019

This retreat will be a place where you can experience authentic rural Japan, enjoy using Japanese artisan “art-for-use”, take cultural lessons from talented village people, dress in antique kimonos, trek the ancient Nakasendo trail, go hiking in the sacred mountains, kayak in a beautiful reservoir or lake, go rock climbing in Kasagi, visit nearby Hida Takayama/Furukawa, visit untouristy hidden gems like emerald green waterfalls, terraced paddy fields, shrines and temples. —————-

What a cold day it was today!
Played around with paper mache while listening to the howling wind striking the windows. -
Man with his hands in his pockets and his big heavy dog. -

Wanted to try using kaminendo paper mache after seeing “hariko” regionally made paper mache. Will take photos of them soon! -

Dragons carved from huge tree trunks.
For some reason, some of the people coming to this temple thought it was a shrine and clapped twice before praying... Maybe it was the atmosphere of the place, I’m not sure. It’s a very unusual thing to happen at a place of worship because the name of the place makes it pretty obvious whether it’s a shrine(Shinto) or a temple(Buddhism). -

“Between every two (pine) trees is a doorway leading to a new way of life,” John Muir wrote once.
Yesterday I presented research results and suggestions to local citizens of a village and a small town in the mountains of Gifu. Life is not convenient there, and the population is shrinking and it is a model to study “post-growth symptoms”, but we learned that people feel they have meaningful life, they engage in organic farming, experiment with local currency. An expression is “nai mono wanai” which means there is nothing but actually there is also everything. They seem to make the best out their “problems” and choose for a slower, maybe less efficient life; but where they buy from humans and not from vending machines. It makes me more convinced to train myself in a skill that allows me to live in nature - and also let people stay for short to long time in nature to find some healing. For me, being in nature is time I feel most in my elements, and I want to bring more people in contact with their nature. Some weeks ago, I applied for a course, and last week I am accepted for a training to become a forest therapy guide. It will take one year of study and practice, and it will probably be hard to combine with PHD, but it is because of this PhD I am more motivated to not only sharpen my academic but also some practical skills. #shinrinyoku #postgrowth #ruralJapan #tree #japanesenature #woodwidewebstories #dryad

Fermented landscape in Niigata, Japan.
Kanzuri is fermented chili pastes with yuzu citron and rice malt. The landscape of chillies on white snow appeals visitors every year in Niigata.
It's similar to tabasco or Chinese doubanjiang, but it is more mild and sweet as it is fermented by rice mold (koji). People in Niigata use Kanzuri for grilling dishes, hot pots, or for sashimi dishes.
