Super Volcano Sea of Japan

Mt. Fuji might be one of the most recognizable natural landmarks in the world.

Mt. Fuji might be one of the most recognizable natural landmarks in the world. Let’s see, Grand Canyon and, uh, well that’s all I can think of. Can you think of more?

Japan is a little bit smaller than the state of CA, where I live, and it is 67% mountainous. Only 13% of it is plains. There are numerous valleys and gorges as well as fan-shaped deltas. There are the Kanto, Osaka and Nobi plans.

But, Mt. Fuji is the king. I’ll go in detail in a future post. My point here is that most people take pride in their country. This is not a patriotic pride, more on that later as well, it is a love my country because it is beautiful kind of pride. And the Japanese love the beauty of their country. Praise their country’s beauty and you will find a friend.

The most beautiful of all? Well, I returned home from a trip yesterday and was standing outside of the San Jose airport waiting to be picked up. I saw a lamppost with a flag on it fluttering in the wind. On the flag was Mt. Fuji.

It really is beautiful. Oh, and I climbed it three times. I wonder what that makes me.

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
