Unbeaten by the rain
Unbeaten by the wind
Bested by neither snow nor summer heat
Strong of body
Free of desire
Always smiling quietly
Dining daily on four cups of brown rice
Some miso and a few vegetables
Observing all things
Leaving myself out of account
But remembering well
Living in a small, thatched-roof house
In the meadow beneath a canopy of pines
Going east to nurse the sick child
Going west to bear sheaves of rice for the weary mother
Going south to tell the dying man there is no cause for fear
Going north to tell those who fight to put aside their trifles
Shedding tears in time of drought
Wandering at a loss during the cold summer
Called useless by all
Nor a bother
Such is the person
I wish to be
"Ame ni mo makezu" was written by Japanese poet and writer Miyazawa Kenji and is one of his best-known works. The poem is an ode to human strength and unwavering spirit, expressing Kenji's ideal of a person who remains steadfast in the face of adversity.
The poem encourages us not to be distracted by material things or worldly affairs but to lead a life of modesty, compassion, and inner strength.
This exclusive leather watch band is part of a strictly limited edition and has been crafted with the utmost care and craftsmanship.
The engraving of the poem is a tribute to Miyazawa Kenji's inspiring work and a reminder of the timeless ideals of steadfastness, modesty, and compassion that form the core of human nature.

To retain the characteristic look of your leather band for years to come, we recommend following these care instructions:
- Keep your watch band away from moisture and humid environments. In case the leather accidentally gets wet, remove the band from the Apple Watch and clean the surface with a soft, dry cloth.
- Even though your leather band resists everyday perspiration, we recommend changing it for a dedicated sports band, when engaging in sporting activities.
- Remove your band from the Apple Watch case at least once a month to clean the adapters and the bandslot, especially after it gets wet.
If you have any questions about your watch band, feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
