photos from around my hamlet.
Just uploaded an album of photos taken in and around my home.
I live in a small hamlet of less than 100 souls called Shimonohara. Nestled against the mountains, with rice paddies in front, the road ends here, so we have no traffic. Shimonohara lies on the Gonokawa river, the longest in west japan. Most of my neighbors are elderly farmers. I like it here.
There are photos of inside and outside my house, photos of the river, the mountains, my gardens. All 4 seasons are represented. I will be adding many more photos as time goes on, but for now viewing the album should give you a good idea of my environment.
I am more than happy to answer any questions about any of the photos.
