A Morning Heaven
I’ve travelled two thousand miles to see a landscaped mystery.
Behold, under the heavens, a scene of majesty!
A sublime beauty sweeping up 12,388 ft above ground
With snow-dappled summit, so vivid and profound!
Now I’ve seen the summit that enlightens
Why you are most praised of all mountains!
All seasons must be sweet to you,
Always beautiful with each changing hue.
I felt that time stood still as I looked at this breathtaking symbol of Japan. In the midst of the placid Lake Ashi, a caldera lake which was brought into existence by Mount Hakone’s eruption 3,000 years ago, warm emotions flowed out of all that purity…nature enveloped me with such kindness and boundless love.
Spending ten days in Tokyo gave me a profound monologue with nature, antiquity and modernity. Let me walk you through its amazing artistry and diversity.
