❚One of the few regrets in my life is…
Dear followers and readers, how are you? I’m TOSHI, a Japanese woman.
Do you have any regrets in your life? I do. One of the few regrets in my life is I couldn’t go to a university in Kyoto, or the any other in Kansai area.
Kyoto is said to be the “Capital of 1000 years”. Until the capital moved to Tokyo in 1868, it was the capital of Japan for more than 1000 years.
Today I will talk about this.

❚I love their long history and unique beautiful words
I love their long history and unique beautiful words, their dialect.
Do you know? There are honorifics in Japanese, and Kyoto and mainly Kansai people sometimes use honorifics when referring to family members, animals, and enemies.
Words have power in themselves. Their musical, soft and beautiful words are, in my opinion, fascinating words that makes the life in front of you look gentle.
After graduating from a university in Tokyo, I tried to find a job in Kansai and did my best, at a joint briefing session for applicants, I got to talk with people from a company that paints beautiful tea bowls in Kyoto as an artisan, but while we talked they noticed an English newspaper in my bag.
“Why are you reading an English newspaper (even though you want to join us)?” Seems they, old artisans, who have brilliant faces, thought that paper disqualified me…
That kind of Japanese artisans have always beautiful faces, I don’t know why. Maybe they are respected.
People laugh when I talk to them about it, but even as I write this, the memory makes me emotional to the brink of crying.
I talked about a little last time when I went to Kyoto,
I really like Kyoto’s train station. Kyoto Station is unexpectedly modern, but it has a hint of Japanese elegance, and it is fun to see exhibitions that are typical of ancient cities, such as an exhibition of exceptionally beautiful kimonos.
There’s a long escalator at the station, and my first stop was to ride it. When I got off the escalator, I heard a little conversation between two young female students behind me, which made me feel nostalgic.
“What would happen if I went to a university in Kansai (Kyoto is a city in the Kansai area)?”
I suddenly felt a pain like a stab in my chest, and it was so painful that I could tear up.
Spending my youth in Kansai was a dream of mine. After a long time, I’m convinced that the life I have had was better for me, but I still find myself oddly sad sometimes.
If you have chance to go to Kyoto or the other Kansai area, some of you will remind what I said now. Because, they are so beautiful.
