Minnami no Sato started as a farmers community visitor center in Kamogawa City. Now it is run by MUJI, a popular fashion brand known for its “minimalist” philosophy. The renovated farmers’ market sells local farming produce such as vegetables and dairy products, but MUJI adds stylish shelves to make the merchandise look even more attractive. Together with a café, a library, and a MUJI shop in the annex, this is the place to taste the country atmosphere in a stylish MUJI way.
The current pandemic doesn’t allow you to get out and about. Disappointed? Just look around you! No matter where you are, if you live on this precious earth, you are blessed with countless beautiful things, and they are right at your doorstep. You don’t have to go anywhere special. Rice paddies with newly planted seedlings, tree branches with bright fresh green leaves, and dandelions on the side of the road. Take a deep breath, be patient, and appreciate what you have.
