The theme of this issue is “Recommended place for migration, editor’s choice, 2017”. In this issue I interviewed people who moved from outside the prefecture to Sado-shi, Niigata prefecture. Sado Island is a very interesting place in Japanese history. It is also a place where cultural people and aristocrats were distributed from old times. At that time the special culture they brought still remains. In recent years, migration of not only Japanese but also foreigners is increasing. It is also an area I personally pay attention to.
