大観峰(遠見ヶ鼻) Daikanbo-Peak ASO,Kumamoto.
Japan

Daikanbo Peak is one of the peaks of Aso northern somma, which is located north east of Uchimaki Onsen (hot spring).At one time, the peak was called Tomigabana (a nose seen from a distance), however the great writer Soho Tokutomi named the peak Daikanbo, due to the request of the Mayor Kojima of Uchimaki town in May of the 11th year of the Taisho Era (1922). The view of the five peaks of the Aso and Kuju mountain range from Daikanbo Peak is splendid, when fields of cloud surround the peak it is especially beautiful. The view is called the Nehan-zo (Nirvana Buddha), because the peeks shape looks like a sleeping Buddha. A panoramic view of Aso town from the observatory is also nice. There are gift shops and restaurants. It is also an astronomical observation spot. Its altitude is 936m, and it is the highest peak of the somma.

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.
