山の上の朝日
Yama no ue no asahi (Dawn on a Mountain Summit)


日本は世界でも珍しく、山の上からでも街が見渡せる国だそうです。¶海外での山頂からの景色はどこまでも続く砂漠や山脈など味気ないものが多いそうです。
狭く、山だらけの国という不便さ故に生み出された光景は実に複雑で美しい箱庭的な光景を作り出してくれています。
景色に人工物があることがこれほどまでに景色に彩りを添えるのは、厳しい自然の中にも安堵させられる見知ったものが見えるからなのでしようか。
こと、朝に山々から漏れる光の筋に照らされて光る水田と街は実に美しいものです。
そんなまばゆい光の彩る景色の中、暖かい光を感じながら山小屋の前をゆるやかに散策し、これからの1日に思いを巡らせる時間は何物にも代えがたい素敵な時間なのです。


Japan is unusual in that you can look out from the top of a mountain and see a birds-eye view of a city.
In most countries, the views from mountaintops are quite bland, comprising simply of deserts or mountain ranges that stretch as far as the eye can see.
Being a small, mountainous country, Japan can be quite inconvenient, but at the same time, it provides complicated, beautiful scenery, resembling miniature gardens.
The existence of manmade things adds color to a scene and because we are used to seeing them, they brings us a sense of relief when we spot them in the midst of nature’s harshness.
In particular, the rice fields and towns extremely beautiful, illuminated by beams of morning sunlight, shining through the mountains.
Looking out at the scenery in dazzling sunlight, enjoying the warmth of the sun’s rays as you take a short stroll outside a mountain lodge, thinking about the day to come, this is one of the best experiences you can have.
