From the video description: 8 years ago, textile artist Yoshiko Jinzenji bought a 400-square-meter plot of land up Mount Hiei in Kyoto to build a kitchen house. The house is an integrated suite with two kitchens, no storage, and everything is just out there. All the materials in the house were collected by herself, “This is my last gift to myself.”
I was thinking about what I would like in my life. What shifts do I want to make as the next year of my life unfolds?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a home? Wouldn’t it be nice to have an outstanding kitchen?
I intend to at least be open to the idea of the possibility of owning a home.
And now I am inspired by Yoshiko Jinzenji’s little home. I am also inspired by her curiosity. She says, “I would rather die than do nothing.”
I am convinced curiosity and fun keep us young.
