Having grown up in the suburbs of San Francisco, picking berries by rivers during summer vacation for my mom’s pies, I have always had a love for greenery and water. At age 25 I moved to Gunma, a land of hot springs, rivers and lakes and wish more people, especially during and after this pandemic can visit. Nature gives us the power to live, and we become more gentle when we return that love through our appreciation of its glory. Through this connection, we can build healthier relationships with ourself and others.
