There is a similar town. Seemingly they are calm by peace. but who knows what will happen tomorrow? After 3.11, in Japan, we have lost many things. The lost told us that tomorrow might not be the tomorrow. We have experienced the night which has never come and the night which has never ended at the same time. What we need now is to understand the real meaning of the repetition of both life and death. The day when we must receive it gets closer to us. It is because we live in now, and we memorize a past, and this is because it thinks about our future. We think that it is that it is possible for us to begin to ask it with 
 what to do not asking you a question why such a thing happened in now.
 Not thinking why such a thing happened,
we have to ask oneself, what would be the best thing to do? The only thing that we can do is that. a town is an everyday occurrence, and our day life, and also the past history. We regarded a sense of distance of the personal need and the demand for group. We learn the present from the memory of the town. We tried that we talked facing a meaning of the essence without being confused by camouflaged environment. We think that this similar-shaped town has reality necessary for us now.
