Abstract

In rural areas, a lot of small villages have been abandoned due to the trend of population outflow. Nevertheless, some parts of environmental elements such as farmlands and forests have been still properly maintained by the former inhabitants. This study is focused on condition of their going to their villages as a precept to maintain small villages. It was revealed that they go to their villages at different frequencies not only to maintain farmlands and forest but also to maintain their graveyards, to gather edible wild plants and so on. In addition, as a result of their action, they don't recognize the effects on their villages but feel their own satisfaction. Besides, most of their descendants won't take over their action. Meanwhile there are some problems like complicated land ownership to pass on their action to someone.
