Happy new year! Starting the year with some Dassai 39! Not my usual breakfast 😅 Let’s rock 2019! 🤘 Also if you are into Nihonshu, I worked a bit in 2018 on a service for a company in Osaka called Sakelogy.com which will provide a great knowledge service for sake. In Japanese and in English. Bookmark it! ;-)

Shorten this run because of a sudden calf pain... not good.

I made a new friend today. One of the last « wild » horses of Japan. They live in Toi Misaki, south of Miyazaki in a protected area. They were also the horses the Samurai were riding back then. Second time I visit the place and there will be certainly a third some day. Thanks to @kanae_nakayama for the picture!
