People chase their dreams. And, want the world to be a fantasy.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.
If we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
Anne Dudley Bradstreet ( 1612 - 1672 )
I love you.

These houses say a gasshō-zukuri ( joining hands structure ).
It resembles manual form when a man joined his hands.
The structure is this local characteristic, and the roof where snow is easy to fall.
Of course people still live in there.
Nobles and concerned people made this village about 800 years ago.
It is the legend that they lose to fight (1180–1185), and sheltered here.
It takes several hours from the town nearby to here, and surrounded the circumference in the high mountains.
Snow shut in people in old days.
It will be the one of the places that are the most inconvenient in this small country.
And it may be a good place of the scenery most.
The ancestral one of them is called "Heike".
They were defeated by Yoritomo Minamoto of "Genji".
Yes. When this village was born, the Samurai's area whom you knew was born, too.
I love you.
