  • Last Sunday I went to Tanzan-Jinja Shrine. 談山神社(Tanzan-Jinja) Shrine is famous for hydrangea, but they just began to bloom and It seemed that I could not enjoy hydrangea so much, so I decided to climb 談山(Katarai-yama). 談山 has the two reading - Tanzan and Katarai-yama. I think that Katarai-yama is the original reading, it means a mountain of talking.

    Though a mountain, it took just 10 minutes to climb 談山. 談山 is said that the mountain was the place where 中大兄-皇子(Naka no Oe - prince) and his staff 中臣-鎌足(Nakatomi-no-Kamatari) talked about planning of the Reformation. This Reformation is called 大化の改新(Taika-no-Kaishin) in 645. This picture is just the place. There is the place where the goverment of Japan started in a sence.

    The day, Greeks selected their throny path by re-election. Meanwhile, we Japanese selected restart of nuclear power plants of Ooi by forcing the prime minister to decide it. I think that we should have talk (談-katarai) about restart of nuclear power plants at the very least.
