I am scheduled to leave for Japan on the 6th of July arriving the 7th. This will be a really exciting period for me as I will begin living in the Buddhist priest's empty residence in the Enmeiji (Long Life) Temple in Nishi-Izu. I will be making new acquaintances with the farming village where the temple is located. Although the temple itself is in beautiful condition, the priest's quarters will require some hard work returning it to liveable conditions as it has been unoccupied for some years.
