Rishiri Island Beer O'Clock

Rishiri island is one of the most impressive mountains i have seen in Hokkaido.

The peak rises straight out of the ocean and is a tough climb. One our attempt we only made it about a 3rd of the way up when it just became too windy and dangerous - seems like you have to get your timing right on this one.

We came up a bit early maybe becuse the snow was sheet ice and scary up higher, we needed some softer spring snow to work with.

One side of the mountain requires ice climbing gear and really to be safe i'd recommend going on a guided trip if not very experienced in ice climbing / mountain saftey.

We opted of saftey and a few beers while enjoying the views once off the mountain. Wild place.

这是一个概述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.
