Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Potato harvest

Severe heat has suddenly come to Kyoto. Actually my body can’t accept this big change after rainy days.
It took time to realize I have this Kyoto summer every year. It’s not unusual. So! So i can overcome it…
It would be wise to stay home and have a watermelon in a cool room.
But, but, but I was staying outside, in the field in the hottest hours afternoon yesterday. Crazy..


I went to Ohara, northern part of Kyoto to harvest my potatoes.
I used a scoop and harvest my 3kg potatoes under a strong sunshine. Of course, it was fun and satisfied to see a rich harvest.
I thank for people who work for agriculture in severe summer and winter. It is very tough.
I gave up just for 1 hour work and went back to my home with a heavy rucksack.
The photo below is a homemade french fries. It was really really tasty. Safe and fresh stuff!


It was very hot. But a beautiful scene of Ohara with a summer sky and red labiate was amazingly beautiful. Really beautiful.
I realized I love nature and love to be in it.
I have to practice to work under the sun..
