Home Is Where You Live in Japanese is 住めば都 which is read sumeba miyako

The Japanese proverb sumeba miyako meaning “Home Is Where You Live” is composed of the word 住めば (read sumeba) meaning “if (you) live” from the verb 住む (read sumu) meaning “live; reside” and the word (read miyako) meaning “capital (city)”. The idea being that wherever you live, the place becomes the most important place in the word.

sumeba miyako is perfect for a housewarming gift, especially for someone living in a new area. This is a great reminder that no matter how different the place, it will become home.
