Today we had two guests from USA (Houston). They are working colleague in the same BBQ restaurant there, so we had a lot of talk about Japanese food. They liked Sushi, but they were not good to use chopsticks.
We got on the cable car that is the steepest in Japan, so they said it’s like a roller coaster in amusement park. We pretended to release hands hold, Yippee ! When we reached to Takao BBQ garden. They were so excited because they work in a BBQ restaurant, as mentioned above. On the observation deck there, we had really nice view.
At Yakuo-in temple, we saw mountain priests and their fire ritual. They cast a question, whether or not a priest can get married. We explained now Buddhism society is modernized, so they can get married. They live in the temple outside Mt. Takao and commute to here. Sometimes they drive a car.
At the top of mountain, we could see Mt. Fuji, and it’s so nice weather and so warm. We are so lucky.
We got down by the chair lift、enjoying the grand view. They seemed to have enjoyed the tour very much and we, too, enjoyed the tour with them.(by Guchi)
