Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, old woman and old man lived in this house.

A lot of Japanese children’s story starts like this.

This house is just like that kind of old country house. It’s a very simple structure. It’s amazing that the house is still there. The east and north side of walls are falling. But I guess that the old woman in a yard is living in the house. It was early morning, like around 7am, she was working in a yard: taking care of her plants.

It’s a nostalgic scene in Japan.
