Oh, I’d love to live in Okutama, prime roadie turf; but it’s a hell of a commute to downtown Tokyo.

The empty houses are really bad as you go farther south in Japan. The thing is that the schools are lacking kids and teachers are hard to get.

I know if I was 40 I'd be checking into these types of homes. Having a child of age at that time would make it possible. As I get older I would really like to have some land to farm and raise some chickens. Can always sell the eggs.

I have fond memories of hiking around the Chichibu-Okutama area.
