Japan: Granny's blog

The first of its kind, a Japanese blog called Sobolog (祖母ログ) [ literally “Grannylog”] crosses three generations, written by a nephew living in Tokyo in collaboration with her mother (who records the facts), presenting the daily life of her funky granny named Hide (82 y.o.) living in Gunma Prefecture. In this blog, the three Nagashima women share with the readers the granny's recipes, her travel accounts and her life in the countryside, uploading pictures nearly every day about Hide-san's bucolic living.
