My name is yooko
I live in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture in Japan
It is located 500km north from Tokyo
300.000 people live in Morioka
What is Iwate famous about ?
Iwate mountain, Iwate river, old City and Canal,
In the fall , salmon will come back after traveling 200 Km from sea.
I think that Iwate is the best.
Iwate is a peaceful and calm place to live in.
I think it is better to live in Iwate than in Tokyo.
For example, commuting time has changed from 1h to 10 min thanks to the introduction of Shinkansen.
I feel that the air is fresh in Iwate so you can breathe deeply and relaxingly using full capacity of your lungs.
I live in a 130-year-old house, that was built a few years after the Meiji revolution.
It is a traditional Japanese house.
I want to live an old-fashioned life and I finally found this house so I feel very happy that my dream came true!
It is only made out of wood, soil and paper.
I feel very calm when I am in this house.
