Land slide

This picture shows one scene that I saw when I went to the foot of Mt. Fukuchi(福智山) by bike on Oct. 11. Probably, a land slide happened there and the slope is repaired by the concrete.

I thought how much money it cost and how many people's lives it can save. It looks a kind of "Koukyou-kouji"(公共工事)(in direct translation, public construction) that means the government build some constructions mainly to create jobs.

As you might know, Japanese land is occupied by large mountain area and we have a lot of rain. So, sometimes we see land slides(地すべり).
