I'm the blogger, Eiji!
I'm learning Georgian!
This article is presented by these three！
It originates from Senaki, located in the Samegrelo region of Georgia！
Here in Senaki, there are currently only three Japanese people living here, including me lol.
Senaki is a warm-hearted and comfortable place to live with a strong local flavour and local residents.
This time we're going to talk about the share house we're living in, Japona House.
Currently, Japona House is inhabited by Kanji, me Eiji and Koki!
This article is for those who are
- Currently living in Georgia.
- Planning to travel to Georgia in the near future
- Planning to travel abroad
- Genuinely curious about where I live lol.
If you fall into any of these categories, this article is for you.
Let's go then!
What is The Japona House?
Here's what Kanji said👇
Georgia is a country of great diversity, with climate, nature, culture and food differing from region to region.
I became interested in the culture of the Samegrelo region and moved from Tbilisi to the rural town of Senaki.
I rented a house with a garden and balcony because I wanted to create a place where I could transmit information about Samegrelo and Japanese culture, and where people could easily gather.
We would like to organise various events to achieve this objective.
Kanji speaks Georgian fluently and is very friendly with the local people, not only Japanese but also people of all races and nationalities.
He is a tolerant person who accepts all people, regardless of race or nationality, not just Japanese!
On a map, it would be here.👇
address : 15 Vakhania Street, Senaki
What kind of people come to Japona House?
We three want these people to get together!
Then you are very welcome. Any race nationality ethnicity is fine.
And anyone else who wants to share their special skills and use them to interact with the locals is welcome to do so too!
Landscape of Japona House.
This is the exterior.
As you move through this...
You'll be greeted by local building tradesmen working and merrily sipping their drinks!
At the end of the craftsmen's workshop there is a staircase that...👇
Up this beautiful staircase, adorned with grape curtains, you'll find...
Such a lovely place to eat!
There is also a hammock on the side that ruins people lol.👇
This hammock is so comfortable that once you fall asleep, you won't be able to get up again.💦
And now let's go inside the JAPONA HOUSE you've been wondering about!👇
Once inside, the first thing you see is the kitchen, where everyone cooks for themselves!
Mr Kanj is cooking now lol.
There is a room next to this kitchen.
You can relax or work on your computer here too!
If you want to work on it, not only here, but ...
You'll feel more comfortable working on your computer in this great room!
It is also used as a place to invite other guests in.
Then let's look at the bedrooms.👇
There are two bedrooms in total.
The first bedroom has this specification.
Sorry it's a bit messy in the bedroom I'm currently using.
The beds here are so fluffy that even I, with my back pain, haven't suffered from back pain since I started living here!
These are the exterior and interior of Japona House.
Then we'll introduce you to some of the adorable, healing family members who share our lives with me!
The delightful, adorable and healing family of Japona House.
First of all, a lovely little girl, 'Onono'!
Poor little kitten, a stray, was taken in by Kanji and now lives with him as a family member!
The second one is 'Imoko'!
She was a stray cat as well, but Kanji has taken her into his family and shared her life with him.
Can you understand?
The first one 'Onono' and this 'Imoko' are combined to become 'Ono no Imoko' lol.
He is a historical figure in Japanese history.👇
The next families are these ducklings.
They live on the ground floor of Japona House.
We also have three chickens, and they always say 'cock-a-doodle-doo' at a certain time, so I don't need an alarm and can live a regular life.
These are family introductions.
There are many animals here to heal you and make your life stress-free.
Japona House activities Soya bean cultivation
Here's what Kanji said.
I've lived in Georgia for three years.
I longed to live a self-sufficient life in Georgia with its abundant natural resources.
I was torn between rice and soya because I wanted to produce Japanese foodstuffs, but decided to plant soya.
A local agricultural company was interested, so we were able to borrow their land and plant soya for the first time this year.
