It is Autum now, and the color of the leaves start changing into various colors which look so cool to view. As the begining of of this cool but not yet too cold season approaching, 4 groups from my graduate school, including me, went to one Japanese (semi) rural area, which is just 2 hours away from my city to conduct fieldwork research. It was a very interesting period of the research and to explore more about those characteristics with sight-ended mountains, forest, and valleys.
In addition to the in dept interview with the villagers and officers there related to the research, what is more interesting is the time we spent there for 3 days having chance to share our joy with homestay family at night, gathering breakfast, lunch and dinner with the research teams, taking stroll in the village seeing the nice various color of the leaves, even those leaves are soon to show full autum color in the next 2 weeks.
It was a very memorable expereince and to be proud of with this such of opportunity.
Here is the link to some of the pictures I took during the fieldwork.
