介護の村へ To the community of care

上五島、ひろんたの山に行ってきました。夏から着工予定の「介護の村」母屋の川沿いデッキのための木を切り出しました。長い柱になるので、最低5メートルを30本が必要でした。

やあぁ、生の木はとても重いですよ!みんなで何百キロの木を一生懸命引っ張って、転がして、そして乾燥させるために皮を剥かないといけなかったです。大変そうかもしれないが、実はこの山中の体を使う作業がとても気持ちいいです。
 
We went to the mountains of Kamigoto for a few days. Construction on “Hironta Mura” care facility will start this summer, and we went to help cut trees to be used for the riverside deck. The cedar we cut will mostly be used forIMG_3161 long support posts, and a minimum of 30 posts 5 meters long are needed.
 

These freshly cut trees are incredibly heavy! Together, we worked as hard as we could dragging and rolling these cut trees which weigh many hundreds of kgs each. We then had to peel the bark off to allow the wood to dry.
It may seem like hard work, but working with your body and hands like this in the middle of the mountains, especially in the spring, feels great!
