Life in Ibaraki

About Me

I am Firmin Archambault (Olivier Philippe). I am French, and I like to cook, grow vegetables roses and herbs, play classic guitar and compose classic music.

After living in Tokyo for about 20 years, I moved to Ibaraki prefecture in Tsukuba hoping to be able to enjoy country life and especially grow vegetables. I started this blog to share the progress in my projects and meet new people.

I also want to try to explore little by little the prefectures around me such as Ibaraki, Tochigi, Fukushima, and Chiba. so I bought an SUV where I can sleep inside, and I am gearing up gradually to try to be able to camp even winter.
