January: Blog-o-sphere Think Tank

~january: if you could live anywhere... where would it be, and why?

I think I'd have to say "Japan"! not only because that's where I came from, Japan is really nice to place to live. nice mix of nature & convinience. I originally came from just outside of Tokyo but I would like to live in little more country setting. after lived in Ohio for so long, I get little panic when I go back to Tokyo... just like my mom, she move to country side when we kids were all grown up. but where she live is just too country for me. so, I have place picked up! it's call "Karuizawa", it's a resort town. not too far from Tokyo and closer to my mom. really nice in summer (people stay there for summer) it gets cold and snowy in winter but I'm use to it! and if I don't have to drive, I love snow. so we are planning for our retirement years, we can have little house there and I'd open little shop on main street. I only have to open in summer. I guess we are going to hibernate like bears in winter:)
