 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.

 There is the world without the noise.

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
