About Me


to meet many people around the world


I and husband live in Hakuba. We were moved to 20 years ago from Kanagawa Prefecture.
Hakuba is the venue for the Nagano Winter Olympics, is famous as a ski resort for a long time.
So many skiers come to Hakuba.
However my favorite season is Spring.
The fresh green of spring makes me happy.
I also love landscape after the rice planting.

Oh, and when you come to Hakuba in spring, please help the rice planting for us!!(^▽^)


Man’s life is like going on foot along way bearing a heavy burden, with no need to hurry.
Remember that absolute satisfaction is denied mortals, and you will be contented. If you are ruled by avarice, call to mind the needy circumstances you were once placed in.
Forbearance is the root of peace and prosperity, and if you forget sufferings and defeat, you will be ruined. Be severe in criticizing yourself and be lenient with others. To fall short is better than to go too far.
