Suddenly the memory came back. I remember now.

It was Autumn there. My favourite season in Japan. Peaceful, almost too uncomfortably.

The yellow and orange leaves.  The persimmons were ripe, almost too old.

I felt the warm sunshine on my back, and I liked the cold breeze on my face.

So close but so far away at the same time.

Home is where your heart is.

Oh my goodness.

How long has it been?

How’s everyone?

I just got back.

My last post was on August 28th, 2012. It’s December 12th, 2012 today.

A couple of months were left empty in my calendar. But that’s OK.

I thought of that warm sunny day in Japan, driving on the countryside road, away from the busy city.

All I saw ahead was the green mountains and the blue sky.

Now I hear the alarm going off, the morning light is slowly waking me up.

The air feels very cold in my room lately.

Inaka = Countryside

It’s been a long absence here.

I’m still editing some of the pictures I photographed in Japan two months ago.

Everything around me is moving so fast, non stop, constantly.

But I slow my pace down in my own space.

Balance is a key.

A distance feels refreshing.

From time to time.

Till next time… (More pictures coming soon…)

Shiga Drive from Natsumi Akatsuka on Vimeo.


We were driving through the countryside of Shiga Prefecture. I love the sceneries of Japanese countryside.
