5. Mt Fuji from Fukagawa in Edo
"Now it seems as if Fuji supports the bridge and without his presence it will be broken like Bifrost, preventing the demons of the past from attacking our present Asgard - or perhaps the demons of the future from storming our ancient Asgard."
Much have I seen and known - cities of men
- from 24 Views
And manners, climates, councils, governments,
Myself not least, but honored of them all -
And drunk delight of battle with my peers
Far on the ringing plains of windy Troy.
I am a part of all that I have met;
Yet all experience is an arch wherethrough
Gleams that untraveled world whose margin fades
Forever and forever when I move.
- from Ulysees, by Lord Tennyson
This is the Mannen Bridge (Mannenbashi) of old Edo, now Tokyo, and long gone. It probably is no longer wise to fish in the waters.
