We call this paradise

A Bubble Era town that is turning around..

There are parts of Japan that are still a relic. Indications of the Bubble "Jidai" are easily accessible places on the map, by their very nature, many rail roads go to them.

Some of these places are being rejuvenated by the new people that populate them.

Places like Minakami. Places like Tenjin-Lodge, Bungy Japan... I could go on..

No need to, though.

Discover it for yourself!
