Todai Moto Kurashi (「灯台下暗し」)
= You must go into the country to hear what news at London.
[Todai: lighthouses; Moto: at the bottom of; Kurashi: dark]
Did you ever notice that it is very dark at the bottom of the lighthouse? Likewise, you tend to overlook somewhere very close to you when trying to find it. Most of the time, it’s really worth it!
