by Fumiki WATANABE

As Japan’s young people flock to the cities to seek their fortunes, the countryside is increasingly depopulated. Those who remain in the villages tend to spurn the quite different values of post-war Japan, wealthy and westernised. In one such village, a mentally retarded high school student, Yoshiichi, hangs himself. A bit of a thief he seemed a happy enough boy. Why did he kill himself then? The question is of little interest to the villagers, except one, Yoschiichi’s teacher.
