Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Daio Wasabi Farm

On my last full day with Kazuko-san we got to go to Daio Wasabi Farms, Japans largest wasabi farm. I had heard of this place from my mom who sent me an email about the farm when she found out that I'd be in Matsumoto, Japan. As soon as I had read about it, i wanted to go. I was beyond ecstatic when Kazuko-san said we'd be going. I was like a kid going to a candy farm. spicy green candy :)
