1000-Year-Old Japanese Wisteria
Japan

兵庫県宍粟市山崎町の大歳神社にある千年藤です。

藤棚の大きさは420平方メートルもあり、言い伝えでは960年に植えられたことになっており、それが千年藤の名前の由来になっています。

毎年4月下旬から5月上旬にかけて藤の花は満開を迎え、大勢の観光客が見物に訪れます。

ただし、小さな神社のため駐車場はなく、自家用車で行く場合は道の駅やまさきに車を置いて徒歩で向かうか、姫路駅から路線バスで山崎へ行き、そこから徒歩で向かう必要があります。

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.
