Observation Room of the former Mackenzie house ( Shizuoka City )
Japan

ダンカン・マッケンジーは天体観測を趣味としていた。この展望室で妻のエミリーと共によく星を眺めていたという。

周囲に高いものはないため、現在でもここからの眺めは良い。海がよく見える。近くの学校では運動会が開かれ、人々の歓声と景気の良い音楽が鳴り響く。
しかし、できれば現在の周囲の建て込んだ風景よりもこの建物の経った1940年頃のまだ伸び伸びとしたのどかな風景を想像した方がよいのかもしれない。おそらく周囲は緑に囲まれていたのだろう。海岸線もまだ護岸工事などは行われておらず、自然な海岸線に波が押し寄せてくるのを見ることができたのだろう。
マッケンジー住宅の姿は変わらないが、周囲の景観は変わってしまった。
いや、周囲の景観は変わったが、マッケンジー住宅は70余年の歳月を経て変わることなく佇んでいる、というべきだろうか。

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.
