As I am living to Miyagi this Sunday for a week, I am right now preparing my next trip and plan to spend some times at the end of this month in Akita. The last time I was in Akita is was several years ago and my memory of the place is a little fuzzy. Still there is place I want to visit and shoot : The historical village of Amasagimura.
With very limited information about this place on the internet, at least in English, I contacted the nice people of Amasagimura and asked them to send over some information and, if possible, a map of their recommended trek the “Kameda Walk”.
This afternoon, the mailman drop a large envelop for me with all the information I needed for my trip. But what I was not expected is that they would actually create a map for me with historical map they add from the place and took the time to make a color copy of it and write down annotations for me, as well as taking the time to write, by hand, a nice note about this map.
These are the kind of small attention that make Japan such a wonderful place to live in and this and which make it impossible for someone like me to ever consider settling back in my home country.
