Hi! I’m Youki! I’m originally from Misugi village! Misugi is very beautiful, quiet and peaceful Inaka place. Misugi has unique history, culuture and lifestyle. Inaka means the country-side in Japanese. However, Misugi is now facing at extreme depopulation problem. When I was elementary school student, the population was more than 9000. But nowadays, decreased by half, about 4000, in this 2 decades. I want to empower our village by tourism. Because tourism can connect many people and industries. In Forestry Experience, I'm cooperating with Mr. Kayama, the forester. He will provide Forestry Experience. In "Kijishi" Wooden Craft Experience, I'm cooperating with Mr. Ikeyama who is a "Kijishi" wooden craft artisan.
