A World Heritage Town: Past and Future
Omori Town in western Japan is located at the foot of the Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine, a UN World Heritage Site. It was once losing its population, but the number of children is now growing thanks to the town's initiatives focused on a tranquil lifestyle and interpersonal connections. More and more young families are moving there hoping to raise their children in a beautiful natural setting, and helping to nurture the community in the process.
