Shibetsu Town where I live,
The Nemuro Straits coastal area, where people have lived for over 10,000 years, is home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of ancient pit dwelling remains. But why did so many people gather in such a remote location, on the fast eastern tip of Hokkaido?
It was the presence of salmon.
The summers here are so cool that air conditioners aren’t even needed, and winter is a very cold but beautiful season. Living close to the land, and symbiosis with nature has always been a part of life here. The proud history and lifestyle of this region is something that we wish to show the world.
