160. Fude Matsuri week in Kumano

Hi Everyone,

It is autumn all of a sudden this week.

A four-day weekend began on Saturday. People are now wearing long sleeved shirts. It is not 30℃ anymore. Summer is over.

Autumn is the best of all the seasons in Japan, I think.

In Kumano, Fude Matsuri, the brush festival, has started, but in a different manner this year.

There are events on the zoom you can watch and brush companies will sell brushes at a discount at their web shop.

Outlet types of brushes are usually sold at the market.

I chatted with Kihitsu last week and,

I know Kihitsu will sell many of their brushes at 20% discount.

Please let me know if you are interested in buying kihitsu brushes.

I can buy brushes and send them to you.

I may need to add my fee as I might not have a wholesale contract with some brush makers.

I was told that a book called ‘Life Span’ is interesting.

The author defined ‘being old’ as a kind of disease, which can be prevented.

I realized that I do several things suggested in the book.

Short fasting – I don’t eat 15 hours a day. e.g. if my dinner was 7pm, my breakfast would be after 11am. Well, it is lunch.

Exercise – go to a gym every day ( less than one hour though, otherwise I cannot continue)

Have a cold shower for 30 seconds at the end of a long bath – I get to like this habit.

And maybe this is a Japanese thing, but I eat fermented food every day.

Mainly Natto, and

I love Amazake.

I eat yogurt.

I easily get drunk so I stopped drinking completely one year ago.

I got red so easily and have a headache so I thought it easier to stop drinking. This has nothing to do with the previous habits.

And I don’t smoke, either.


Having said those,

I am not addicted to being healthy,

the only things I ‘try’ are:

short exercise,

natto (LOL)

15 hours’ fasting

cold shower

I am not a doctor and not in the position to give you advice.

It is just a routine I do for myself and each person has own way.

If you can get natto easily in your country, maybe you can try.

Believe me, you will be used to it, LOL.

Thank you for reading!
