Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki lived a happy life as dairy farmers in rural Japan, raising two lovely children. But tragedy struck when Mrs. Kuroki suddenly lost her sight due to complications from diabetes. Soon, she became depressed and withdrawn, secluding herself in the family home.
Mr. Kuroki struggled to find a way to cheer his wife when a beautiful idea occurred to him: he decided to plant a flower garden where she could enjoy their smell, enticing her to go outside. Two years of hard work and thousands of flowers later, the private farm now draws people who want to see this real life love story from all around the world.
Mrs. Kuroki can’t see anything, but she loves to be outside
She and her husband moved to this dairy farm shortly after they got married in 1956
They raised two children and lived a happy life until something went wrong with Mrs. Kuroki’s sight
A week later, she was blind due to complications related to diabetes
Depressed, she began to withdraw and stay indoors
Concerned about his wife, Mrs. Kuroki struggled to think of a solution
And then he began to plant flowers
Thousands of scented flowers over two years
Slowly, Mrs. Kuroki emerged from her shell to enjoy the garden
Now, she smiles every day
