Many visitors from towns voice with a wondering face:

There are houses and vegetable fields in the slope of the mountain Why are they making a living in such a high place or slope in a mountain? How do they get electricity, water, and food? How about hospitals, schools, or shops? Where are they? Who made such a scary bridge? The questions from the visitors made me notice that here may be a place of wonder for the first time . This place with the landscape I see in my daily life is turned out be a place called "Japanese unexplored area."
