Q4. What is the moment in your daily life you miss camping the most?
I always miss camping and nature. Lately, I haven't been able to do it because I've been a little busy, but I always pick up my kids in the morning and go for a walk in the park. When I was young, my dad used to carry mountains with me, and I really hated it back then. I thought I was a city lover, so I went to Tokyo to study abroad. Then there was a difficult time while studying abroad, and the experience in nature healed me. A friend I became close with in Japan from a young age was a child who grew up in a naturalist-like educational environment, so on the way to school, he always told me what kind of grass is this grass and what kind of insect is this, and I naturally experienced playing in nature. As I recalled the good moments of my childhood, I was overwhelmed with the smell of nature and the beautiful vibrating scenery.
Looking back, our school was very special. After class, I go to a place like a hut in the mountains to sit around and play. In spring, I go to the mountain behind me to dig bamboo shoots and fry them. Do you know the movie <Hana and Alice>? If you look there, you can see something like a circle room, but our school did just that. Playing a record and dancing in a tatami space as if in Japan's 70's and 80's... The friend who taught me about nature is now working as a printmaker and a fairy tale writer, and has published 5 books. and it's popular.
