First steps...

Well, we've got a busy couple of months ahead of us. In case you haven't read this introduction, we're looking to move out of the rat race and out into the middle of... somewhere. We're still not sure if it'll be Japan or the UK, but I have to say that Japan is looking more realistic at the moment.

Back to the busyness. Last Saturday, Kazumi and I went up to Myoken to see a place we've been told about that's on the market.


I went up there with Paul the other day, and was surprised just how big 500 tsubo is (just under a half acre). The house would be lovely if it was tarted up, but it'd be several years worth of work (or several million yen's worth of builders' fees) to get it anywhere near good. The land is big enough for veg, but there's no forest to talk of, and we'd like a rice field too. Don't get me wrong. The land is a steal considering where it is. I'm just not sure that we could do what we want to do there.

On Sunday we got up at the crack of dawn and set off to Nara to see one Mr. Kawaguchi (video). He's been farming a piece of land up there for the last 30 years, and has developed a special technique sometimes known as 'Natural Farming'. If you're familiar with Fukuoka san, you'll know what I'm talking about.


There are some pics up in the Photos section of the site.

The next few days are going to be pretty busy too. We have a bunch of fudosan lined up in Okayama to show us some places that have caught our eye. What do you think of this for ¥2,800,000 !

I'll let you know how we get on.
