Jot #2 Katsunuma, Japan - May


Look at the ground, the beautiful geometrical patterns cast by the grape vines.

My favourite scenes of Katsunuma, Koshu city, Yamanashi, Japan.

I wonder you can see the beautiful scape. There’s filled with the sounds of birds and covered with the fields of grape vines. All farmers are growing the vines with great care.

Haramo Wine ー Koshu City, Yamanshi, Japan

This historical winery is said that built 130years ago. I do not know a lot about wine but The Haramo’s wine is famous for that it is awarded the best Japanese wine Show. They also hold the restaurant in this Japanese traditional architecture and serve good local dishes which use seasonal vegetables, of course go well with The Haramo’s wine.

Sakura Notes
Let me show you my home town in Japan, where I came from.
This landscape is the view from really nearby my home. In my childhood, I played here around everyday. At that time, those trees were so little young, thin and less blooms.
Now that after 20years passed, they have grown up well and turned into beautiful place filled with Sakura bloomings.
My father then tells me the spring sign with his rare photographs
( So surprised that it’s my first time ever to know he is good at photo. ).
Whenever I look up at the trees, I can’t stop my feeling as if they tell me how long the time have passed by all living things in life.
