Life is tough people when you get up there in age.
It's too hard at my age to consider working for a Japanese co. So once again l'll see where the wind takes me.
I do some gardening, like growing potatoes and garlic and have a place to sell, but it's seasonal and the money is currently more of a hobby.
Really, l guess we work till we drop.
Stay healthy everyone.

You can do that or find a cheaper country to live in.

Good luck on your journey and I think it's very impressive for a 70 year old to still be as young at heart as you!

Have you thought of documenting your cycling tours with a gopro and sprinkling in some interesting facts or legends about the places you visit and holding interviews with the locals.

I bet you can outcycle most 20 year olds and would get a lot of views depending on which way you go with the content.

For example, if there's a town with a ghost house or any other paranormal type legend a lot of folks would watch.

Kōun o!

Cleaning and preparing garlic for market can be labour intensive. A friend who grew garlic and had visits from Jehovah's witnesses came up with a solution. He'd tell the witnesses he was busy, but could they come back at a given time and date when he would be pleased to talk to them. When they arrived he would be in the barn, cleaning garlic, with straw bales arranged to sit on. After a while they would join in with the work. Free labour plus interesting discussion about, for example, the technicalities of loading various animals onto the ark.

If you can get 2000 dollars together you might want to look into getting a Bambu X1 Carbon and starting a 3D Printing business. They are a real breeze to use, do everything themselves, no annoying bed levelling etc.
Don't know if thats a viable option for your circumstances?

Hey ATS members, firstly, thank you all for your replies. Yes, it is true that I'm in pretty good shape at my age to where I do hop on my bike and cycle Japan taking 30, 60 and even 90 day cycling trips including camping and using guest houses. I do have a blog with nearly 600 replies and over 30000 views. I never thought of anything more than just posting my adventures here in this country. I'm pretty low key actually since I know who the real pros are, but simple life is my shadow. I plant a garden that is of really no maintenance which allows me to travel and see Japan . I grow potatoes, garlic and have tried green peppers and basil, but potatoes and garlic is best till I expand . It is very true though especially when one lives in a foreign country and realizes that Social Security doesn't go very far. So now it's winter time and I need to have something to do.

19Bones79 I like your idea. GoPro if I can swing it for next year is a thing people have told me to do.
Kester thanks for your comment
Brigadier I'm going to have to pass on that one, its above my league
and14263 I've posted this several times, Japanese pension for me is only about 20000 yen ( $200 every 2 months ) no one can live on that. I don't think here they have casinos, but we have pachinko parlors, but I've never been in one. Not really a gambler, but I do buy a lottery ticket just for the mental gymnastics of dreaming of winning

mysterioustranger wow! what a "light bulb" awaking for me 500 yen a picture at the children's park I think is a drop in the bucket for the mother's . I will let you know about this one. Tomorrow I go to the camera shop. The new type of Polaroids are pretty cool and a bit expensive. I'll send you a pm on this one or just follow this thread many thanks

My father worked well into his 70's completely normal and understandable

I always read and enjoy your threads MIM, and yea I would love to see some GoPro videos of your cycling through Japan. It sounds like essentially you don't want traditional employment but I did find this. Sounds like you aren't alone.

www.japantimes.co.jp...

Did you mention a blog? where can we find that, I'd really like to read and explore that too?

I like this idea and really enjoy watching stuff like this where someone can go around another country but share it in English. One that I can't find again that was great, is a man who goes to sites of ancient architecture in India, some of the lesser known ones too, but presents it in english.

I think your talking about this guy.





He's got some pretty cool videos I've watched a few of them before.

I was thinking perhaps MIM could combine gardening tips by day with a paranormal twist by night.

A video could start out as wholesome and normal and then he could do a twist as the sun sets.

Perhaps there are permaculture in some places that's always cool to watch.
