Although her times in Noto goes by everyday, she has never got bored with the life there, but rather keeps a fresh and curious look towards the nature and the people of Noto, since ever she had a first sight when just moved to the villege from urban cities far in the distance . There, new discovery through the riches of natures and the life in the countryside, and the quiet and sometimes sad and melancholoc feelings the scenery evokes are co-existing delicately.
