On the way to Ooma... taken from my very window! Too steep... too close...
Sooo... upon reaching Ooma... well, it is a typical village and I love the place. It's nothing in there as what we can find in the city ... but the nature and farms are so abundant, the air is so fresh, the people are friendly and the way of living is trully simple as in typical rural area. What amazed me most is that I found out that there is a Japanese tea plantation village in Aoi District! Yap... it's all up there in Ooma!
