My house isn't very big either, so how to live beautifully and comfortably in a limited space was the theme of my life skills. So in my 30s, I decided to see how far I could simplify my life. As for tableware, large and small white plates, rice bowls, cups and glasses that can be used in both Japanese and Western styles, and the rest are packed in boxes and stored in the storeroom. I no longer have to worry about which plate to use for each meal, and the complexity of housework has been reduced at once. However, after continuing such a life for a while, it became somewhat boring. Green tea tastes better when served only with hot water, and miso soup is served in a soup bowl, giving it a more flavorful taste. In other words, it is a dish, including the vessel, and it is also the moisture of life. Quality of life cannot be measured by rationality alone. When I actually tried it myself, I realized that the color of my life leads to the richness of my heart.
