I just wanted to share some photos from my new city, Tamano.
My old address was God's Door City, Long Field Ward, West Ass Lake.
My new address means Treasure field City, Cosmic Wisteria Tree
An old man waiting for the train with his dirty feet up on the bench explained to me with eager, outstretched hands, that this whole area used to be part of the sea. Then they built a wall to keep the saltwater back and were able to make low-lying rice fields. He said no houses were here before, and the mountains were islands. I wasn't sure if this was the ramblings of an old man, or if it was true, but at City Hall they gave me a map of potential areas for natural disasters and yeah, it looks like the only thing preventing my area from being the sea really is this wall holding it back. Don't worry, if a tsunami comes, the path up the mountain is almost directly in front of my house.
