Anyway, the village in Kurosawa's movie has always looked like a wonderful place to live in and recently I found out that the it actually exist. The Daiō Wasabi Farm (大王わさび農場, Daiō Wasabi Nōjō) is a wasabi farm established in 1915 and located in Azumino, Nagano Prefecture near the center of Honshū. It is (unfortunately) a popular tourist spot because of its beautiful watermills and for the river that runs through it. Still, it's definitely a place I would like to visit in the future.
Dreams by Akira Kurosawa is one of my favorite movies and I recommend you watch the dream about the village below. In case you choose not to I will summarize it with the following words from the main character in the movie: ”Some say life is hard. That's just talk. In fact, it's good to be alive”.
What places do you dream of visiting in the future?
