May meet the specter in "Natsume's Book of Friends" ... to Japanese rural landscape ~Hitoyoshi~

"Natsume's Book of Friends" drew the world of monsters and human. It is a fantasy anime that is to cry of too much tenderness. It was popular enough that the fourth quarter was produced.

Become a stage is a Kumamoto Prefecture, a hometown-living areas of the author. A very calm place that leaves the original landscape of Japan's rural culture. Do visit when you want to take a break.
