My Neighborhood

Filed under: Inaka Life, seikatsu — myyearinjapan @ 11:58 pm

As I mentioned before, the area I live in is fairly rural. Unlike the states, for example, where rural means houses that are miles apart, a separation that gives people a lot of privacy, rural Japanese homes tend to be found in clumps. A group in homes may be surrounded by rice fields and hills without much else, but the people who live in each house are isolated from everyone else.

A view from my apartment. There are several houses by my apartment and just past them, tons of rice fields.

A bus stop and a mailbox

Near my apartment, a cute little bus stop next to a mailbox that's almost the same size.

Rice fields with the hospital in the distance

Rice fields aplenty and in the distance is the hospital.

A rural vending machine

Even in the middle of nowhere, you can live with convenience. The red box in the lower right corner is a vending machine.

Field

Not just rice, but veggies are also grown near my apartment.
