Japan is a volcanic country.

Every day, somewhere in Japan, a volcano is in eruption. 

毎日のようにどこかで山が爆発しています。

Volcanic activities are quite usual for Japanese people, so they won't be  surprised unless they hear an eruption occur in the neighboring mountains.

To be sure, it causes much damage, but it also heal mind and body.

Masaki & Steve had quite a long conversation about...

We experienced a most relaxing yet educational day with Masaki, touring the sites of Uji, home of matcha. Because my husband’s mobility and energy was compromised, Masaki chose this outing for its length and flat terrain, plus he is very atuned to the history there. He was most patient with our challenges yet delivered a wonderful tour.
