I went for a walk in the countryside near the hotel in Narita and I came upon this in the middle of nowhere.

It stands in a clump of untidy bamboo but it has been well cared for.

I had absolutely no idea what it was there for, yet for some reason I was drawn to walk up the path from the main road and spend some time with it.

Perhaps the figure watches over the rice fields that grow on the opposite side of the road, or perhaps this is a place someone comes to remember someone or something…..

I didn’t need to understand to enjoy my visit.

  1. Yes, sometimes you enjoy something jut ‘because’. 🙂
    That’s probably one of the best reasons

  2. ‘Simple’ enjoyment of what we see is so important.
