There is a Japanese word “借景 shakkei.”( borrowing a scenery)This word means the utilization of the views of surrounding mountains and woods.You can see these scenes in the traditional gardens, temples and old residences. Although I didn’t think about “shakkei” when I thought through the plan for my house, I could see the neighbor’s plum tree from inside my house.
In particular during this season, I am able to see the beautiful flowers and relax fortunately.
If the window sash didn’t exist, we would be able to see them better.
If I lived near enough to the station to go to work easily, I wouldn’t be able to see the changes in nature.
Your attitude about where you live all depends on how you look at it.
