The purpose of this study is to research the mutual help activities of the island village as welfare resources. This village as a function group, different from traditional local communities, is developing new activities. The features of the activities are as follows: map making helps to form many activity organizations; the village residents who don't participate in the organizations use the base of the organization; as by-products, alternate functions of inactive women's associations and clubs of the aged are found in some groups. As for the government support, they set the scene for introducing the group activities.The mutual help activities in the community caused awareness-raising among the residents and also made them recognize the value of self-help and mutual help. As a result, I confirmed the measures not only to solve welfare problems immediately and directly but to look for a desirable situation for the residents of the community.
