Niseko Hirafu - Fujiwara

The World > Asia > Japan > Hokkaido

  • thumbs down

Probably not the best place to stop and take a panorama but on this day the cornice was fairly safe and this area was open to enter at your own risk by the ski patrol.

Fujiwara gully is in between Hirafu and Hanazono and is named after a person who died there after being caught up in an avalanche there - i don't usually snowboard or ski around so if you do head in there please be mindful of the dangers.

After shooting panos for the most part of the day i was really tired and was just snowboarding around with my rig ready to go - when  i got to this point instead of unstrapping my board tand taking my bag off i just placed my set up above the front of my board shot the pano i then detached my camera moved my tripod out of the way and took the down shot hand held and it actually worked out ok - laziness pays off sometimes.

Esta es una vista general de Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.

The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.

They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.

So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.

The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.

I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.

At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)

Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...

Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.

They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.
