Lake Ashinoko near Kojiri
Japan

ここはなんといっても世界に誇る観光地箱根芦ノ湖の北の端です。芦ノ湖は標高800mにあり、箱根の火山の噴火によって川の流れがせき止められてできた湖です。箱根の地形について、富士山をも上回る巨大な火山がかつてあり、何回かの爆発を経て現在の形になったという説が信じられてきましたが、最近は違う説の方が有力らしいです。ともかく箱根に行くならなんといっても芦ノ湖です。元箱根近辺の騒がしいところと違い、この辺はとても静かで景色もきれいでゆったりした気分に浸れます。正面から見て左側南東方向には最高峰神山、そして北東方向に見える煉瓦色の建物は芦ノ湖の水の出口である湖尻水門です。残念ながら富士山は雲の後ろです。

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.
