Winter here is harsh but here is warm.
In Oguni, the seasons shift very clearly. In the winter, there is lots of snow.
In spring, the abundant snowfall leads to lots of water in Oguni’s land, nurturing the life of flora and fauna and bringing with it many blessings.
For the white skin of its beech trees, the white bounty of its fallen snow, and the white of the town’s campus mostly untouched by human hands, we call our town “Shiroimori,” which means “White Forest.”
This town is harsh, beautiful and warm.
