My brother’s home has finished construction in the end of March. I was not aware of that very much as my mother who lives with me. Living with old parents is difficult sometimes, but for now cannot help – it’s sometimes called “parasite children”. In Japan, sometimes single children stay with their parents, but considering that parents get older and need assistance, it’s not bad for them sometimes.
Anyway, she often told me, “It’s their matter, I don’t ask”. But in fact she is sometimes sending big boxes of Toyama food to his family. Especially for her loving grandsons. She’s got thank-you phone calls, actually she knew about progress!
Lately a bunch of photos came from Kanagawa Pref.(his place is about 50 away from Tokyo metropolitan area) as usual, most of them were of home being built, one of them there was a photo of room that you can view Mt. Fuji. Closer look, if you climb it’s not very beautiful with garbage, still its beauty is very special. It was my brother’s room.
People from Toyama feel unstable in other places, because they feel relaxed to see great mountains over 3000 metres when it’s fine. He was out of town when he was young, no longer speaks our dialect when back home, but after all he is from here.
