There is no mistake. At Muchang and Chikurin place we are still in 1970 or so :-) Which suits me perfectly! @yawara_ya is one of my favorite places. In their own style, they do the best pizza. We spent a great day. Good food, good drinks, and good music (when I am not playing 😅)

We have a visitor this morning! Check @canae_nakayama post to see it if it made it to the wall, I was out of storage 😅 Also if you are bored, check my newly created account @obi_base where I am sharing a mix bag of things like my home office, some japanese houses interior, discoveries of Obi, all in a Tokoro George spirit if that makes sense. I am using these hashtags overthere :

So @canae_nakayama and I moved again! 🚚 First thing was to set-up my home office for work. Going for a mainly standing position this time, but the setup is going to evolve a lot, this is just a temporary solution with what I have at the moment. We are going to live in the cute town/village/borough (?) of Obi⛩, Nichinan. A place with an old history and glorious times in south Kyushu, now a mainly quiet and a bit of touristic place. After moving 3 times in a year (for good reasons a couple of times and once because of a bad experience) I hope this time we are in for a longer run! Obi (飫肥) seems to be an easy place to raise a child too with all the necessary facilities at a walking or short ride distance (not often the case in Japan countryside, with depopulation). Bonus, it is also a good starting point for cycling 🚴 adventures with mountains ⛰ just outside of the town and the coastline 🏝not too far for the occasional 🏄 surfing session. Since Jules 👶 birth we have been super busy with him as you can imagine, plus I started a new job in August and we were looking for a new house. pfff... 😮 That’s why I was not very active around here, but I am looking forward to sharing about our new area. Finally, the good season is starting now here. I have some DIY ideas 🗜for the house and my desk setup and also running outside 🏃‍♂️became bearable. Woot! All in all, more to share soon!

Promenade du soir Avec ledzep 1 dans les oreilles.

May I introduce you to Jules or 樹宇瑠 (ju u lu) ju : big grown living tree, u : space/cosmos, lu : first kanji of Lapis Lazuli He arrived on earth about 12 days late, on July the 1st. Maybe he missed his space shuttle ? For a brief moment he was the most recent human to count (ok, like all of us, but still ;-) He is a big and healthy boy. @canae_nakayama was very brave and strong. That was amazing. Thank you❣️

A couple of stops between Kitago and Miyakonojo, we are catching the coolness of the waterfall during this hot day.

Received some psychedelic love from Canada! that was fast! Thank you for the card and the words @bhopals_flowers for psychedelic music lovers check @hypnoticbridge

an other waterfall today, this one is off the path, just a bit sketchy to reach but it was worth it.

impressions de mon trail ce midi dans la vallée d’Inohae. En Français pour une fois! (ça fait très bizarre)

@canae_nakayama ‘s uncle set-up a couple of bee boxes and a swarm recently settled in.

Today’s walk with @canae_nakayama. I failed at keeping my distance with Taro the tokage anf Jiro the frog. At least I did not walk on them... Take care.

Taking it easy in Aoshima café Zeal. 😷☕️🥐

Sunday afternoon walk on Nichinan coast.

Some pictures taken during the last few weeks around my current working space in Nichinan city, I really like this older part of the city and port.

Miyazaki organic festa, pretty good music and small kids everywhere!

Today’s run in Nichinan and yes sakura trees, like each year, are already blooming at Kitago station. Photographers are also blooming 😉 I wanted to have a pic with the local train but it passes here only few times a day 😅. #北郷駅

2 working spaces I have been using recently. First in Miyazaki city is in @wakakusa_hutte café 2nd floor, your rental comes with a 400¥ drink (or is it the opposite? :-). Second picture is Akarengakan (red bricks hall) like in Yokohama but in a tiny version, an old wharehouse which has been renovated. The place is in Nichinan city, Aburatsu port and 9 times/10 I am alone in this large space. And you know what : it is free! (

Short trip in Kagoshima with @canae_nakayama . Discovered Nagashima and fell instantly in love with the island. Also not too far the Akune station, one of the cutest stations I ever seen!

First run of the year, thinking of my dad who would have turned 75 y.o today...

Quick 2 days in Tokyo. Took off from Kagoshima airport. You can see Sakurajima in the back. Fixed gear bikes still big in Tokyo. Not photographed, I noticed : On the train wireless earbuds of all sorts.(bare with me, the country boy). My room near Nakameguro station was nice. So many tourists, what a change since I started to live here. No time for tourism myself this time though but glad I still could meet few friends
