Hello, my friends.
This is my first post in English, so be nice to me. If you find any mistake or typo, please leave a comment bellow.
Today I’m gonna tell you about japanese countryside where I do live now.
This water mill is the Soba House. 「そば」soba – a buckwheat and the buckwheat noodles. There’re some buckwheat fields around.
This green plants is「長芋」nagaimo – long potato. It’s tasty when it’s fried.
Can you imagine Japan without rice? Of course not. Rice always was a main part of Japanese life and culture.
This little hays are made by hands. After drying it will be collected for feeding pets.
Daikon is a giant radish about 50-60 cm long. You can eat it raw, boiled, fried, stewed, pickled.
This person is fertilizing the garlic fresh planted out. This garlic will be harvested in the next spring.
One day I met this pretty snake near our house. It’s a tiger keelback.
This how tipical village street looks like.
Aomori prefecture is located on the North of Japan. There’re a lot of snow here in winter time. Sometime snow can be 1 meter high. To prevent roads to be blocked with snow Japanese use snow barriers like this. It’s down during summer time and up in winter.
After WW2 Japanese started to use a lot of electricity. Now there’re some solar electric plants, wind farms, and of course nuclear plants.
The Eboshi mountain is not so far from our house. I hope I will have time to hike it.
Several days ago we got first snow. Winter is coming.
