Description

Excerpt from The Tale of Forty Seven Ronins

Having said so much by way of preface, I beg my readers to fancy themselves wafted away to the shores of the Bay of Yedo - a fair, smiling landscape: gentle slopes, crested by a dark fringe of pines and firs, lead down to the sea; the quaint eaves of _many a temple and holy shrine peep out here and there from the groves; the bay itself is studded with picturesque fisher-craft, the torches of which shine by night like glow-worms among'the out lying forts far away to the west loom the goblin-haunted heights of Oyama, and beyond the twin hills of the Hako n? Pass - fuji-yama, the Peerless Mountain, solitary and grand, stands in the centre of the plain, from which it sprang vomiting ?ames twenty-one centuries ago. For a hundred and sixty years the huge mountain has been at peace; but the frequent earthquakes still tell of hidden fires, and none can say when the red-hot stones and ashes may once more fall like rain over five provinces.
