Good old memories with " Once in a lifetime encounter " Japanese calligraphy





   "Home"

There are parents, brothers, family...
The place that anyone always returns.


   This house is cultural assets stored in a state about 50 years ago.






   Childhood, I played with friends around my house.
The long way.   The high wall...


At the time, I felt so.






   The building becomes old.
However, the nostalgia...


They are vivid, still now.



The disappearance of any building will be unavoidable.
No matter how luxurious it is.
Its Impermanence has already been described in Hōjōki, published in 1212. 


Nor is it clear to me, as people are born and die, where they are coming from and where they are going.  
Nor why, being so ephemeral in this world, they take such pains to make their houses pleasing to the eye.  
The  master and the dwelling are competing in their transience.  
Both will perish from this world like the morning glory that blooms in  the morning dew.  
In some cases, the dew may evaporate first, while the flower remains -- but only to be withered by the morning sun.  
In others the flower may wither even before the dew is gone, but no one expects the dew to last until evening.

Hōjōki Chapter 1   Section 3







"Once in a lifetime encounter"

Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur...

( ichi  go  ichi  e )

This proverb comes from the tea ceremony.
And it is the knowledge of the first on the list of Sen no Rikyū.

ABOUT FIND/47

FIND/47 is a photo-sharing community designed to promote stunning scenes from Japan's most overlooked localities.
The dynamic photographs archived on this website showcase off-the-beaten-track scenes of nature, historical buildings, regional festivals and customs, and other local subjects from across Japan.
Such subjects have been captured for years--both by professionals, as well as casual photographers who often discover gems in their own backyards that more seasoned lensmen may overlook--
but there has never been an organized framework for distributing these pictures.
FIND/47 is a community in which anyone may reuse the photographs published on the site.
By inviting the public to browse our archives and find surprising and unexpected moments of beauty that they can then publish in media worldwide, we hope to encourage people of all nationalities to travel to Japan and explore even those parts of the country that rarely appear in tourist guides.

************** Postscript **************

Hello everyone visited.
Thank you for visiting "FIND/47".

Only selected photos are uploaded, so just looking at it is fun.
And it's free to download.
I'm a photo lover and I don't need to download it, 
but I love the "concept" of such a "Good but Free" site.

The WEB has evolved because it is “free”, 
and I hope that it will continue to exist in the future.
The good things survive by being "free", and the bad things are culled by being "free".

Today's society is like, "Oh, this way. That's no good, this is no good."
In a storm of self-restraint, "justice" and "loudness" pass through the center of the road. We are suffocating.

Even on WEB photo sites, when I see a site that has a signature or watermark on the photo, or has a detailed cautionary note about copyright, I immediately close it.
If it's such a photo, there are many more "FIND/47" and "free and wonderful photos"! I will think.

I respect copyright.
But if they claim it, they should be formally published as a work.
In the Free and No charge WEB world, they shouldn't claim it.


I sincerely pray for the perpetuity and development of all my friends and
their sites.
