Photos only #19 The legendary snow-white village



 The villagers keep this life about 1000 long years.
 Great descendants...

 The loftiness of the human is maintained.



 A lot of steep mountains shut in them.
 The way such as the thread leads to the village.

 It may be good that don't look back on the course came.



 Quietness.
 There is the world without the noise.

 and the human origin.


Here is Shirakawa-gō ("White River Old-District"), Gifu Prefecture.

Photos only #18 Autumn in the Japanese garden

    




Cleanliness is one of the most important factors in Japan.

It's a virtue.


Shrines, temples, gardens, indoors. Cleanliness has always been maintained.




Cleanliness is the basis of spirit, mind and body, life and society.

However, it is often forgotten.


Maybe the cause is economic priority thinking.




There is a big and filthy country next to my small country.

Ancestors have always fought against it since recorded history.


If that filthy country threatens my country, we will definitely fight no matter how big it is.



 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 

Gospel of Mark 10-25

Good old memories with " Once in a lifetime encounter " Japanese calligraphy





   "Home"

There are parents, brothers, family...
The place that anyone always returns.


   This house is cultural assets stored in a state about 50 years ago.






   Childhood, I played with friends around my house.
The long way.   The high wall...


At the time, I felt so.






   The building becomes old.
However, the nostalgia...


They are vivid, still now.



The disappearance of any building will be unavoidable.
No matter how luxurious it is.
Its Impermanence has already been described in Hōjōki, published in 1212. 


Nor is it clear to me, as people are born and die, where they are coming from and where they are going.  
Nor why, being so ephemeral in this world, they take such pains to make their houses pleasing to the eye.  
The  master and the dwelling are competing in their transience.  
Both will perish from this world like the morning glory that blooms in  the morning dew.  
In some cases, the dew may evaporate first, while the flower remains -- but only to be withered by the morning sun.  
In others the flower may wither even before the dew is gone, but no one expects the dew to last until evening.

Hōjōki Chapter 1   Section 3







"Once in a lifetime encounter"

Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur...

( ichi  go  ichi  e )

This proverb comes from the tea ceremony.
And it is the knowledge of the first on the list of Sen no Rikyū.

Legendary Shinto shrine with " Heart " Japanese calligraphy





   This Shinto shrine is named Mirror Shinto shrine ( kagami jinnja ).


This is the legendary Shinto shrine which there is from the ancient times about 1700 years ago.
There is it in Karatsu-shi, Saga Prefecture.

God dedicated to by here is Empress Jingū (170-269).
She performed religious service at the time of war here and dedicated a mirror.
This area of circumference is named " Mirror ", too.






   We rinse out a mouth and hands before entering the precincts of the Shinto shrine.
This is called a small pavilion with water and ladles (chouzuya, or temizuya).






   There is the normal in the one side of the approach to a shrine, but there is it on both sides here. 
It is very excellent structure.







   "心" (shinn, or kokoro). It is translated as heart, maind, spirit, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, regular script.






This is a movie of the noted place of Kyoto
