... rice farmers, if they are lucky, break even. ...
As I now have a palatial home that was built by a rice farmer, and have seen many like it here in rice country - I have to disagree. With Japan's rice prices at 17 times (?) the world price - all supported by taxes - the rice farmers receive the last little tinkle of my sympathy pis_.
Come on, tell the truth, you've spent a couple of weeks every year, in Japan, after you married that J slapper, who was on study oor working visa in Australia, 7 years ago. You wait for the change in the wife, once Japan becomes home again.
What the hell?
What a Jacka$$ you are.
That was totally uncalled for.
As part of our impending move back to Japan, to play the Inaka, subsistance lifestyle on a farm ( 1,000 squ. metres is a farm?), we have put our farm in Oz on the market. All our chooks are for sale, as is our plant and equipment.
While we wait for that to sell, we are moving to a house near the beach. We'll be sad to leave the farm, but the house has great coastal views, however, almost no land.
As soon as the farm has settled, we'll rent out the beach house and head to Japan.
Fun times ahead! I have to be bloody crazy to do this at my age.
I am a teacher living in the country side. I like the cheap rent, fresh air and more friendly people compared to the city. The one disadvantage is if you lose your job, you probably have to move to find work.
