2nd floor of "Great Inn KASHIBAYA"
Japan

この場所は二つの階段が交わる場所。

「みせの間」からの階段は宿泊客が使用したものだろう。
「みせおく」からの階段は宿の者が食事を運んだりするのに使ったものだろう。
どちらの階段も勾配が急で、現代の私たちには使い難く危ないのだが、昔はこれが標準。
急勾配の為、この位置から階段自体は写らない。
この階段を、食事を両手に持った女中さんが勢いよく登っていく姿を想像する。
屋根裏からの短い階段は、展示スペースとこの場所をつなぐために作られたもので、本来はなかったものと思われる。

More About 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.Text by Steve Smith.
