This Japanese Dairy Farmer is a Better Husband Than Any of Us Will Ever Be
Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki are dairy farmers in rural Japan. They’ve been married since 1956 and have run their farm since about that same time. They raised two children and all seemed fine until Mrs. Kuroki went blind due to complications from diabetes. This made her sad and withdrawn and she stopped going outdoors–something she had previously loved to do.
So Mr. Kuroki did what any spouse vying for the title of “world’s best husband” would do: he started planting scented flowers.
Over the course of two years, he planted thousands of them so his blind wife would go outdoors and enjoy their aroma. It apparently worked:
