I live in “Hokkaido”, the northern most major island of Japan,
Hokkaido is a little different in weather,
climate and culture from theother parts of Japan.
Its scenery would remind you of the country side of Germany or Switzerland.
A photographer once said that Hokkaido is situated
at the southern most of the region where
Alaskan and Siberian hunting people used to live rather than
at the northern most of Japan.
Japanese people have believed every single thingin nature has a
divinity since ancient times.
I imagine you would feel the presence of the divinities profoundly in Hokkaido.
I was born and raised here, seeing a cloud floating in the light blue sky,
trees with white bark and insects wiggling under neath the fallen leaves.
“Wood shold be sort of flowers of light,” said Wright.
Well, I am going to spend my life admiring flowers of light.
