OBUSEBITO

おぶせびと

長野県の市町村で最も面積の小さな町、小布施町。 小布施町のまちづくりは、まずは住民たち自身が楽しめる居心地良い空間、自慢できる町をつくる、というコンセプトに約30年前にはじまりました。 その結果、過疎に悩む長野北部の寒村は、観光の町に変貌を遂げ、人口1万人の町に年間100万人が訪れるまでになりました。 このフィルムはまちづくりのキープレイヤーを含む、小布施町に住む魅力的な人たちにフォーカスしたドキュメンタリーです。 彼らの生き様は、日本のみならず世界のまちづくりのヒントになるかもしれません。

Obuse, the smallest town in Nagano. The town planning of Obuse started about 30 years ago, with the idea of creating a comfortable space where the townspeople can enjoy themselves and building a town to be proud of. As a result, the deserted town in Northern Nagano transformed into a tourist destination, attracting a million visitors a year in a town with a population of ten thousand. This film is a documentary focusing on the fascinating and charming locals living in Obuse, including key players in the town planning. The way they live may be an inspiration for town planning in Japan and around the world.
