My Son’s Summer Holiday is Over

My son’s school began today. He managed to do most of his homework this year, which is the first time for him. He hadn’t done his homework before and we, the parents, didn’t care about it either since we don’t believe in homework that much. For us, having multi-sensory experiences are more crucial. He got all those experiences, too.

That is another good element of living in Shiga. Even during the COVID pandemic, there were plenty of things we could do without exposing ourselves to crowds. Having the lake, surrounding mountains, and Satoyama in between provides us Ikigai.

I think he had a good summer holiday.
