This time we get an example that fits the John Cleese-theme and an update on how this genre of Instagram comedy is faring.
Sounds weird? Not when Mette guides you through it!

Doinaka (ド田舎) is the Japanese word used to refer to a very rural location; i.e. the countryside, the boondocks, or the sticks. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 76, in Japanese and English), Satoko Maeda takes us to the countryside of Nagano Prefecture, Otanimura to a little village called Ooami and tells us stories by way of her lively photographs. Satoko -- or Sakko, as she calls herself -- moved to this little settlement of 60 people (most of which are men and women above the age of 70) about 5 or 6 years ago from Japan's northernmost island, Hokkaido. The residents of Ooami are real salt-of-the-earth folk; they till their land, grow their own vegetables, and share in the yield. Through her photographs, Satoko documents the transformative power of the seasons -- from celebrating with traditional festivals in the summer, harvesting crops in autumn, keeping the snow at bay in winter, to watching the multi-colored blossoms emerge in Spring -- and how it changes this little community's day to day life. For Satoko these images are not only an extension of her life experiences in the inaka, but convey the warmth of her feelings as well. To really get a sense of what inaka life is like, you'll have to give this presentation a look, or check out Satoko's Doinaka Nikki (or, "Countryside Journal") to see what she's up to these days.
