Yearning for nature - I want to live on a vast land amidst grand nature.
I wanted to live on an expansive piece of land. That is why I chose the Tokachi area in Hokkaido.
After I moved to Hokkaido, I engaged in practical agricultural training for about a year and a half. My doctor, however, told me I had to stop because I had injured my lower back and hands. Since I was unable to continue, I gave up on agriculture and joined a newspaper company in Obihiro City as a freelance photographer.



I want to build a house on my own - This is my Alp.
@Twenty years ago, I had never even thought about building my own house. I happened to learn, however, that it was possible to build one on my own, so I began looking for a way to do so. Building a house requires great physical strength. Although I was concerned about my health as I had become sick, I gave it a try, thinking that perhaps it would work as reverse therapy. Unfortunately, my illness was not cured, but I did begin building this lodge with the help of my friends.



Just stepping outside, I find myself in the midst of magnificent nature. I live amidst nature, in a place where the sounds, light and smells are different from those in cities.
@Even when inside buildings, we can hear the chirping of wild birds here. Taking just one step outside, you find yourself surrounded by grand nature. I would be pleased if nature lovers could come and visit. Exploring nature on your own is very fun. I also serve as a nature guide and accompany tourists to ensure that they can enjoy flowers, trees, etc. If you learn the names of flowers or trees, mountaineering will become even more enjoyable.
@We do not have a TV here. Since people come all the way here and are finally able to get away from their work, I want them to talk about their trips to the mountains in the evenings.
