TETSUICHIRO TSUTA

Good morning, Granny.

Good morning.

Granny, do you know the name

of this flower?

No I'm afraid not.

Really It's very pretty though.

It sure is.

More than that, Haruna.

Seems like you're a little late today.

You're right. I'm off then.

Be careful.

Good morning.

To prey upon is an instinct

Most important here is the nervous

system. Using this to the fullest

they catch what's necessary for survival.

Same goes for the Indian kingfisher.

All animals on the planet have

similar instincts

in order to coexist with

the environment.

And of course, humans also

react to different environments

depending on the area

Oops.

That was gramps Shimizu.

His son Hiroshi works in Tokyo.

Ya know him?

Huh?

Hiroshi.

No

Oh well.

But really, be careful in the mountains.

A college kid from Osaka fell in the

falls and died the other day.

Oh

Everyone says he was bewitched by a fox.

What?

Still got them things 'round here.

I swear, be careful or you'll be a goner.

Hey boss.

Hey Tamura. Hot ain't it?

Sure is. How's it comin'?

No good today.

What happened?

Those foreigners came and

posted these this morning.

Do something about it.

Well I'll be tough on them

next time.

I'm counting on you.

Who's that?

Mr. Kudo. He's from Tokyo.

Hello.

President of Nakaishi Constructions.

From Tokyo, eh? Welcome.

How long you staying?

Um

haven't really decided.

Say, wanna come shooting

with us next time?

Boss, people from Tokyo

don't do that kind of stuff.

That so

Shooting?

Wild animals.

They've been damaging property,

so we're asked to get rid of them.

Boss is a sharpshooter, you know.

How was Sunday?

Guess what. I shot three deer.

And

we also spotted a monkey.

All of us got ready to shoot it, but

those guys are quick.

Can't help that.

Well, I'll be going then.

Tell me whenever you want

some deer meat.

You also let me know

if you need anything.

Thank you.

Another dropout from the city.

Shut your young mouth.

The Michael House

Is Michael around?

Thanks.

Hey!

Come on.

Good work.

Keep it up.

Hi Michael.

How's it going?

Not bad.

Wow, a good-sized watermelon this is.

It's been a good harvest.

What happened with the

tunnel construction?

Well it might not be so easy.

No giving up on this, Mr. Tamura.

You're right.

I'll see what I can do.

This is Mr. Kudo who called earlier.

He'll be staying a while.

I'm Michael.

Nice to meet you.

My name is Kudo. Pleased to meet you.

These vegetables are from our garden.

Please try them out.

Thank you.

What brings all these people here?

There're many reasons.

Some read about my activities

on the Internet and gathered

while others just ended up here

like you.

May I ask why you came to Iya?

Did you dropout?

Well

something like that.

I see.

But nowadays, that too is a splendid

form of contribution to society.

To not be part of the vicious spiral.

By dropping out for the time being

is one option.

I believe that

those who gathered here

are also fighting the vicious spiral

of their home land

by coming here and tending the garden

and growing crops.

Stop the construction!

No more construction!

Stop construction!

Sugeoi Elementary shuts down

its 127 year history

Sorry, this is all we can give you.

Business is not good.
