Outline

The closed elementary school on the sea in Tsunagi town of Kumamoto is regarded as a post office, which gets letters written about occurrences on Wednesdays from the whole country. After turning down personal information, they will be exchanged at random and be transmitted. Some of the letters are open to the public on the exclusive web site, and also the residents read them and they are broadcast over the radio (a momentary pause from October). These actions play an important role, such as creating a new "community" where residents gather in city planning with art culture we work on.
