after a week in tokyo, it felt so good to leave the city behind. we had some funny adventures on the way, like sleeping one night in a manga café where teenies and oldies were reading manga cartoons, playing computer games and watching movies all night. we had a little computer room to ourselves, more like a both with a madras on the floor and no ceiling. after that we arrived to fuji-no, were we did a spontaneous trek of about four hours to cross the mountain, where we knew there would be a permaculture center.
one night we slept next to a little shrine, on the top of a hill overlooking this tiny, quiet village. the next night we hid in this very impressive forest, more like a jungle. listening to cicadas all night. being a little bit afraid of wild pigs. cuddling up to find warmth.
