Re: Small Hamlets that Have Disappeared from a Map (地図から消えた集落)

There used to be Seven small hamlets in the northern area of our district. They had made their living with small fields and charcoal making from abundant woods around their home. But, due to the Fuel Revolution (燃料革命) and some other reasons, they had to decide to leave from their own homeland that their families had lived for generations. From the photos, I was able to imagine that they must have been living hands in hands at the harsh mountainous place. But now, there are no traces at all that the people used to lead their happy lives….only weeds have grown heavily.
