Hirokawa Temple walk 4/30/10, part 2

Continue from Hirokawa Temple walk 4/30/10, part 1

I keep walking on from the Hirokawa temple toward mountain range to another ruins.

#1 I only walked 0.9km from Hirokawa temple and now it will take 1.5km to the Mochio ruin castle.

#2 I went up on the hill but I was little disappointed that I could see the newly developed town on top of another hill near by....

#3 Going up the hill, I found a little house riding school. It is really in the hidden mountain area, so I wonder who is practicing there....

#4 This is a pass way towards Mochio castle ruin. Just right by side of somebody’s house, and I wonder how long the path has been there. Probably from 13-14 C, when Samurai or Ninzya was running around the mountain....

#5 Here I took my self portrait in front of an orange farm. The mountain range on the background was very beautiful. Ashamed of myself that I looked tired already. haha.

#6 I tend to include some spirits (ghosts?) when I take pictures. Here I took a lots of spirits in a round circles, when I took the photo in front of the corner zizo. Believe it or not...

#7, 8 This little colony of village is inward into like circle by the mountain hill. It is like a hidden village that it is hard to get out of town.

#9, 10 I took these in front of an old temple. Abandoned. But the view from there was very nice. I took these graves and Buddha, because I think it was monument from old Samurai from 13-14C. I hold the camera tight all right, but it got the burry image, event though I took many pictures. Believe it or not.....

Frank Lloyd Wright フランク ロイド ライト

Here is my school essay regarding Frank Lloyd Wright.

Yodoko Guest House

There are fourteen building designs, which Frank Lloyd Wright has done in Japan. Six building were built, but two of them were destroyed by the 1923 Magnitude 7.9 Great Kanto earthquake (around Tokyo.)

Frank Lloyd Wright traveled outside of America for the first time, and went to Japan with his wife. There were 37 years old in the year, and he spent two months touring natural and historical landmarks from Nikko (North East of Tokyo) all the way down to (Shikoku island) Takamatsu.

He made a contract to build the new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in late 1911. After a year of project delays and several trans-Pacific crossings, Wright finally took up part-time residence in Tokyo in January 1917. (Wrightian Architectural Archives Japan)

In 1918, Wright made a design plan for a second house for Tazaemon Yamamura who was the eighth-generation brewer of the famous sake “Sakuramasamurne,” in Nada (near Kobe.) It took a while …
