1. A flat cable wiring structure, comprising:
an operation mechanism that detects a physical operation made on an operating surface and outputs a detection signal;
a control board, disposed facing the operating surface of the operation mechanism, that outputs a driving signal for imparting
vibration to the operation mechanism on the basis of the detection signal; and

a flat cable that electrically connects the operation mechanism and the control board,
wherein the flat cable comprises a routing portion that extends from the operation mechanism to the control board along a
movement direction of the operation mechanism, and

wherein the routing portion comprises a bending portion that bends at a bending angle allowing the routing portion to be routed
along the control board.
