Walk With Me

Walk With Me

More often than not, I think the neighborhood I live in is sublime.

I walked around my neighborhood with my new found friends the other day and one of them turned to me and said “you have such a opulent walking course” and I had to agree.

Join me on a small walkabout around my neighborhood, so one can also experience to joy of a rural Japan neighborhood.
