The everyday beauty of the Niigata countryside

The everyday beauty of the Niigata countryside  photo

I feel like I’m constantly posting pictures of flowers out here - but it’s hard for me not to! We stumbled across this patch of sunflowers yesterday, and I was yet again taken aback by just how beautiful the scenery is here in Niigata. This wasn’t a flower festival or anything fancy, just someone who had decided to plant a bunch of sunflowers in the one spot. 

Anyone else have sunflowers popping up in their area at this time of year? Perhaps you’ve visited a sunflower festival locally! There are quite a few that happen at this time of year, I believe!



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!

    Gorgeous! Posts like this remind me of how much I miss the peaceful, easy beauty of the Japanese countryside.
