I am a Japanese housewife in a local city of which the number of population is about 160,000. The city is my hometown and located in Shikoku (the island, 4 prefectures are located in Shikoku island) famous for the pilgrimage area where pilgrims travel around 88 temples are related to Koubou-daishi(Kukai) the monk in 10th century.
After graduated a college in Tokyo, I had worked there as an editor. I left Tokyo and work when I was married, and came back here my hometown. Away from busy megacity Tokyo and exhausting work, I became a Japanese housewife in a local city. Here I have been living my life very slowly, caring to housekeeping, gardening, and everyday meals like my mother and my ancestors have lived so .
I’d like to introduce a life of a very ordinary Japanese housewife in this blog. For example, how closely our life is related to four seasons. We have four seasons and live always in climate change and various scene through seasons. Along with change of seasons we select house decoration and tableware. And we have seasonal events in almost every month. We make special house decoration or make special cooking for them. And also Japanese Kimono closing culture tells you friendship between our life and seasons.
Let me write about things or events like above and share an enjoyment of Japanese housewife life with you! And I hope you like real (not on media like advertisement or article or TV program introducing Japan) Japanese culture preserved in daily life in Japan.
