Always good and especially good today. Master can learn from big lessons from daily life.


Wonderful post, from beginning to end. One of the things that has always impressed me about the Japanese is the pervasiveness of simplicity - in their food, their art, their homes. And it is simplicity for which we, as presenters, should always strive when we convey our messages.

Great post Garr, thanks !

I like very much what you said about Daisetz Suzuki whom I didn't know. I wholeheartedly agree with him. Nature is ingrained in our heart and soul. Think that we evolved for millions of years through it and have only become "civilized" in the last 10000 years. :)

So yes, I love onsens and especially rotenburos in winter !

Speaking of that, whenever you have time could you give me the name of the ryokan where you took the left picture of your private onsen. We are always looking to try new ones ! As soon as the heat goes down...
