Imagine waking up to this every morning. And this is what I woke up to yesterday.
Through the left window, an unobstructed view of Mount Iwate, standing tall at 2041m. Last recorded eruption dates back to the year 1919, though recently has become active again.
Looking down, stacks of sawn wood lined up at the wall. Soon to be used as firewood in the iron stove that heats up the house.
Through the front window looking down to the left, the wooden verandah covered with fresh snow which has accumulated from the night before. White painted table and chairs sit prettily at the corner, beckoning visitors to come and enjoy a cuppa.
Imagine owning a winter villa like this and being able to escape from the madness of city life.
