What is important is how can Yuushu City earn money?

Yubari railway line is the railway line that Yubari railway (Hokkaido charcoal steamship ship) was operating. Since I was born and raised in a tenement building near the railway, the wagons that carry the tenement houses around this station and coal are always reflected in the pleasant landscape that I was playing with my friends including coal picking (^ ^) I live in New York It is clearly written that the guy says "To avoid the second collapse" as a subtitle by "NHK interview team" "10 years since the collapse of Yubari city", but the solution to the problem is also an idea for improving the situation No reference information is written at all in this article. why? why? So how do you avoid the second collapse? Japanese media coverage, this pattern too much. "I feel that the direction of using labor is wrong". I feel the same way. Libert 's' How to play' is more than ten times more constructive and helpful. This article is also a PR article of "Shocking Nippon's Impact" (Kodansha Contemporary Newspaper) as a PR article, but as Mr. Ribei points out, Japan's media thinks that there are too many patterns that do not show solutions or remedial measures I will. Compared to overseas media, I feel the difference in the reporting attitude. Yubari city is also trying to make use of existing resources, but it is not a creative-oriented movement to create new value like New York. Would you like to launch the Yubari region revitalization project model, such as "Digital City Yubari" and "Art City Yubari" (^^) Then it is the same as listening to an excuse for a child not doing "summer vacation homework" (How to play New York) "Can not do" to "Can"!

Ainu language cards were created for foreigners visiting Japan to help Kimiko Oikawa, who lives in Yayoi Town, Tomakomai City in Hokkaido, know widely the Ainu language. This playing card was completed in about half a year, with the cooperation of Mr. Yasuko Yamamichi (Ainu name: Asiri Lera) who lives in Nibutani of Heikei-cho known as a traditional person of Ainu culture. Mr. Oikawa, who has been interested in Ainu culture for a long time and touched the Ainu language, said, "Most of the place names in Hokkaido are derived from the Ainu language, although it is a culture that Hokkaido is proud of, it is at risk of extinction." In Ainu cards, various Ainu words are written in the upper half of the card. The pronunciation is written in katakana and romaji, and below it the meaning of the phrase is written in Japanese and English. All 54 words are made up of different words. Ainu cards are 1,000 yen. You can purchase at around 20 places in Hokkaido such as Shirao's Ainu race museum and souvenir shop of Tomakomai West Port ferry terminal "Memoria". In addition, you can purchase it with Hokkaido designed antenna shop "MUSEUM STORE" and Amazon. It is exhibited at Amazon "Nanohana", with English translation "Proverbs Karuta".

English brochure of wooden gold leaf big statue of Buddha in Iwanai Town

Iwanai Town in Hokkaido is at the base of Shakotan Peninsula, and since the Meiji Period, it was prosperous as a fishing ground for herring. There was a momentum approaching 30,000 people 40 years ago, but in recent years the depopulation has progressed due to the decline of the fishery, and the population has decreased to about 13,000 people. Mr. Kenichi Narita, who is a priest who has become a monk from a general office worker, wants to create an English brochure for the Great Buddha of the Izuchiin Temple, an important cultural property in Iwanai Town, challenging cloud funding. It seems that local cooperation and English ability are indispensable for regional revitalization. There is also the impact of the largest "6.8 m high wooden gold leaf large Buddha" north of Tokyo, and it has become a hot topic beyond the target amount of 200,000 yen on the third day (the remaining 32 days) on the beginning of cloud funding ^ ^) Foreign tourists are also increasing in Iwanai cho, which is the birthplace of asparagus cultivation in Japan, from nearby towns and villages in Niseko (Niseko). Ski resorts and resort developments are planned, and future development is also expected. "Kaneta Yoshida Kamaboko Store" founded in 1898, Tent shop inaugurated in 1949 "Muramoto tent", a fishermen's direct processing aquatic processing company "Ishizuka Fishery", such as regional revitalization and charm of Iwanai Town and well- I think that I want to know more, "Limited goods" which only "Refugee" is available here (^ ^) Wooden gold leaf large Buddha of height 6.8 m!
