2009.11.08 Mt.Fuji from Haknoe

fuji.jpg
This is the scenery of Mt.Fuji from Ohwakudani, Hakone箱根 in Kanagawa prefecture. Mt.Fuji seems to have something related to the mentality of Japanese, as sometimes it is worshiped as "Reihou霊峰", meaning "Holly mountain." The highest mountain in Japan, surrounded by plains and low hills, is highly visible. It can be seen at various places in Japan, including Tokyo, where 100km far from the volcano.... It reminds us of the nature power. In fact, surprisingly, Japan is the place where 4 plates are gathering under the ground: Eurasian, Philippine, Pacific and North American plate. The movements of the plates have caused many volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Mt.Fuji has already erupted few times; the latest eruption was in 1707. Other volcanoes are now still active, such as in Sakurajima, a peninsula in Kyushu district, there happened more than 400 times of eruption in THIS YEAR! These ceaseless activities of nature must have effected on the sense of Japanese in some way. We accept that everything is to change, which might be taught by the great power of nature.

This is the painting about Mt. Fuji by Katsushika Hokusai 葛飾北斎 in 1800's, which is said to effect on many artists in other countries such as Vincent van Gogh.

Gorakadan強羅花壇 is known as a luxury hotel. I could enjoy onsen温泉 or hot spring at private garden of the room. There is also a big onsen for all all guests, which is fine, too.

Silver grasses of Hakone箱根 in Kanagawa神奈川 prefecture. Generally, silver grass is a symbol of autumn in Japan. We have a traditional custom so called Otsukimiお月見, to enjoy the full moon in the autumn evening, arranging silver grasses in the room. It was October 3rd of this year.
