Today I visited the old house of my late grand-parents'. After my grand-father's death in 1997 we have kept it for our precious memories and used it as our summer house. But finally we decided to give it up, it is going to be pulled down next week so I made my last visit.

It's an old house, built about 70 years ago. Not an expensive house but well-built, well-cared house and well-loved by family. Despite its location - very near to the famous big shrine in Kamakura (famous old town full of noisy tourists) even today it keeps quiet, nice atmosphere, whenever I go there I could feel really calm, relaxed, it has been a important refuge for me from the countless stress for years (maybe for my mother, and for my aunts, too). I know well that we will miss it very much, but unfortunately things have to be changed sometimes...

So, just... farewell. And many thanks.
