Preparing For the Winter Season

I changed the tires to studless tires today. That is one thing we do at the beginning of December in Hino Town. We don’t have a lot of snow like Nagano or Niigata, but we have 6 or 7 snowy days during winter and it is difficult to drive without studless tires.

Slowly, we are moving to winter.

I love this season though. Sunset is so beautiful just a little before the winter solstice.

Feeling the season is Shindofuji, too. Shindofuji means eating locally and seasonally, but it also means living locally and seasonally. Doing things appropriate to each season is one of the keys to health and longevity.
