Little Matsuo

Little Matsuo – M乃沢鉱山社宅 再訪 – is a tiny bunch of overgrown apartment buildings surrounded by rice fields.

Mine workers used to live there in the 50’s, 60’s. I don’t know if they enjoyed their work there but for sure their family did. The area is as lovely as those sweet anime depicting beautiful countryside scenes.
