There have been times when Rinko has spent days in Tateshina with her family, but it is also a special place for her to spend time alone. In the past Rinko was swamped with work and had almost zero free time for herself. Ten years ago she was busy managing two dental clinics, teaching English to high school students, and took care of her family the rest of the time. She often wondered, “What on earth am I doing?”
But when at home in Tokyo she could not escape from it! The monster of responsibility continually chased her…! So in order to get a breather, she went to her second house in the mountains of Tateshina, Nagano Prefecture, even if only a few days! You might even say she fled to Tateshina! Mother Nature and God’s breath gave her peace and tranquility …! The sunsets and the morning sun, the birds chirping and the circle of flowers together with the starry sky always healed her soul! In Tateshina she was reinvigorated, recharged, and returned to work later with renewed energy! The day she returned to Tokyo was always a little sad.
And now, she has placed herself in an incredibly privileged environment where she is fulfilled in Tateshina on a regular basis! She had no idea that such a day would come to pass or ever be possible. But no matter how hard the situation was, she never gave up but she overcame all these problems as she was unconsciously guided by the Hand of God in her life
Rinko hopes you will visit and enjoy her beloved Tateshina someday.
She invites you to be with her!
