私が小学生の頃教科書(社会かな?)には、箱根用水の話が必ず出ていたと思います。今はどうなのでしょう?さて、ここは箱根用水の水をひく入り口の水門のあるところです(南側の煉瓦造りのもの)。正面には海賊船や大湧く谷に行くロープウエイが見えます。深良(ふから)用水とも呼ばれる箱根用水は江戸時代にたびたびおこる水不足に悩まされた小田原藩が芦ノ湖の水を引くことを考えて江戸の商人に請け負わせて作られたということです。芦ノ湖外輪山に1280 mにおよぶトンネルを掘るという難工事を驚くべきことにたった4年で(1666-1670)行ったのです。またどうやってあの時代に両側からほって真ん中でちゃんと出会ったのでしょうか????水門自体は最近つくりなおしたもののようです。ともかくもこのあたりは車が入ってこられないのでとても静かな散策が楽しめます。

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.
