We have an organic attitude of sorts, but we do not go out of our way to be organic or alternative, rather, we do what suits us at the time

生活上必要なものはまず作ってみる。店で買う場合は、石油化学製品でなく、持続可能な資源のものを選ぶ。食べ物は自分で育てることを基本。外から買うときは有機栽培農家から直接購入。自宅で処理できないごみを増やさないようにする。テレビ・ラジオはなし。暖房は薪ストーブ。調理も薪のエネルギーを最大限利用。水やりに雨水の使用。

We try making any daily necessities first. Buying at a store, we choose sustainable resources instead of petrochemical products. We try to reduce garbage that is difficult to be disposed at home. No television, no radio. We use firewood and gas for heating or cooking. We make use of rainwater for our garden.

  • We usually eat vegetables and rice but we have meat and fish if we are given it
  • We cook mainly Japanese meals
  • We sometimes cook Asian types of food
  • We sometimes cook Western types of food
