Though the word is usually associated with an education policy calling for reduced hours and content in Japan’s primary school curriculum, I liked how Naomi and her student discussed it in a more expansive sense:

“It’s a kind of living with spaciousness. For example, it’s leaving early enough to get somewhere so that you know you’re going to arrive early, so when you get there, you have time to look around.”
