Tinyhouse in Japan
Dochter Jools en ik stopen al drie maanden verdwaalde muntjes en soms knisperende bankbiljetten in de kop van onze porseleinen spaarpot Boedha . Jools haalt een keer in de maand al het gespaarde geld eruit en maakt er dan hoopjes van en gaat tellen . Ik je vertellen het gaat best goed . Dit lijkt ons een tof Tinyhouse om een paar nachten te verblijven .

In Ohinata, Sakuho-town, Nagano-pref.
We built a small cottage at a mountain side of the natural woodland which separated for a while from the colony.
The time flows graceful here, while the interval of farm labor or works in the mountain.
It is a special time to have Coffee or Beer while looking at Mt. Morai on the other side.
You can spend time, being surrounded by nature…
reading books slowly, taking a walk the mountain, listening songs of birds while lie on a hammock in the forest.
