Japan Times: Bowling, hiking, Kompira, and concert

by

Hugh Paxton’s Blog suggests that this is of interest to people living in Tokyo. The bowling is erratic (in my case), the company first rate, the mountains first class! A good crowd! And I spent quite a long time stopping various villainous companies from removing mount Kompira. They wanted to flatten it. Break it apart. Haul the sad remnants away.
They lost the struggle. People power! The mountain is well worth a look. Half way up the stairs to the shrine you will see a parade of thin wooden planks. These have been erected and decorated by the local Shinto priest. One of them says thank you to the Paxtons for helping save the mountain in calligraphy. I think that’s touching! Can’t read it. But touching!
