About This Project
To our knowledge, no literature exists that examines the experiences of the people of Yuzawa or the Snow Country area of Japan. We are taking an ethnographic perspective by collecting oral histories to document changes experienced by people who have lived in Snow Country area for 50+ years. On these trips we will interview a total of 25 men and women. We will produce a summary that aims to identify how the residents of Snow Country have adapted to modernization.
