About

I used to travel by myself when I was younger. The longest place I traveled was India. Well, including Nepal for few months and Thailand for a couple of weeks, I traveled there for one year. Against my expectations, I learned a lot about Europe there through many travelers from Europe. I also faced my own country Japan, again by those Europian people whom I met there in India. They told me how Japan looked like to their eyes. I got interested in Japan, though it may sound funny to you, I know. Now I live in Fukui where I can say this is very Japan. I come from Tokyo. Tokyo is more international city. Fukui is not so traditional and touristic as Kyoto. It's not famous like Hiroshima. It isn't Fukushima though they have similar names. Fukui is one of the most invisible prefectures even for a Japanse person. To tell you the truth, I myself wasn't sure where it is located when I first met my current husband who is a Fukui native, while travelling in Japan. If you are interested in Fukui, please contact me. I'm sure you can experience true Japan.

Local experience

I like walking along the river near my house. The river bank is covered with thousands of cherry blossoms in early April. I can take you to a small mountain near my house. It's beautiful in autumn with red and yellow leaves. I will take you to a secret cove to swim in our local sea if it's in summer. Eiheiji temple is a quiet nice plce to visit. I can try to arrange zen meditation experience for you there or another temple. It is a head quarter of Japan Zen Bhuddism. If you want to see snow, come to Fukui in winter. We have a lot of snow.
I have two favorite cafes. One is in the middle of a deep mountain and it's run by people who live there self sufficiently. Another is just by a local train station in the middle of paddy fields. They sometimes have musicians(pro and amatures) to play for a lunch time. And it's reasonable. A local train is something nice to get a ride on. It takes you to the sea, this cafe, to the temple etc.
