Today is the day 1 for us to start a month stay at KOCHI prefecture, TOSA SHIMIZU area.
The place we'll stay is "KAIYU" - a guest house with hot spring, beside a beautiful "Ohki" beach where sea turtles would spawn every year. Three of us will have simple, family time together for a month.
We stayed KAIYU every summer for a few days when we participated in a long-distance swim competition at SHIMANTO river, and last Sep. I found KAIYU's special offer which one can stay KAIYU for discounted price (or even free) as a reward for one's labor.
I was about 8 months pregnant, and had no idea how it will be like with a 4 month-baby, but I couldn't help asking this question to the owner Mi-chan "Can we stay here for a month?!".
Mi chan was first surprised but soon said "Sure! Why not?" and also his wife Tae chan said "Oh, Wow.. what a plan! :) If you all fine at the time of next March, Yup, we'll welcome you all."
Now my partner Yu-chan, lovely daughter Sana, and I are relaxing at KAIYU's room. I will post our day to day updates here from now on, so please stay tuned ;).
