Misao and Fukumaru. “We will never be apart.”
12 years ago, Japanese photographer, Miyoko Ihara (伊原 美代子) started to take photographs of her grandmother, Misao. Born in 1981 in Chiba (Japan), Miyoko Ihara has studied under Kenji Higuchi (樋口健二), after graduating from the Press Photography Course at the Nippon Photography Institute in 2002. Miyoko is also a member of The Photographic Society of Japan.”
“Under the sun, everyday is a good day. Another good day, Fukumaru”, Misao. Eight years ago, Misao found a odd-eyed kitten in the shed. She named the cat “Fukumaru” in hope that “God of fuku” (good fortune) comes and everything will be smoothed like a “maru” (circle)”.
“We’ll never be apart!”, says Misao to Fukumaru. Both of them live in a tiny world, with dignity, with mutual love. Still today, under the blue sky, Misao and Fukumaro work in the fields and in these natural surroundings, where they shine like the stars.”

Peanut Butter Yogurt Pie
Rich and creamy peanut butter pie in an Oreo crust. Made with just Greek yogurt and peanut butter, the tart peanut butter filling is loaded with healthy fats and protein. No-bake and simple prep make it a must-try!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: N/A
- 32 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt (I’m partial to Chobani)
- 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 9-inch crust of your choice (Oreo, graham cracker, etc.)
In a large mixing bowl, stir the yogurt and peanut butter with a wire whisk until blended. Spread into the prepared pie shell. Chill the pie overnight (the pie will be thicker the longer it is chilled). Serve with chopped peanut butter cups or whipped cream, if desired.
