Summary

Credit: Marianne Cooper

Paul had Abe Coley, from Home ReSource in Missoula, with him in this podcast to review Just Enough: Lessons on Living Green from Traditional Japan, by Azby Brown.

A visit to the home of a Samurai.

Paul notes the size of this Samurai’s home (a 24 mat home) compared to that of the carpenter and the farmer as well as the addition of maids/gardeners. Their in-house hierarchy and comforts, or lack thereof, are also described & discussed.

Further commentary goes into detail about the importance of the large garden and the participation of everyone in its upkeep. Communal involvement with food supplies, notably rice, is also considered.

There are details about the building materials used and the advantages of specific materials including the use of bamboo for shading.

They end this podcast by describing the responsibility of the Samurai in the community as well as their cottage industries.

The complete 10 part podcast bundle is available in the Digital Market at Permies.
