Synopsis : 

[On August 20th , Shōwa 49 (1974), a stone tablet inscribed with a haiku was set atop Mt. Fuji.  This was my father’s near-reckless project, to fulfil
the dream of my grandfather who was a haiku poet, —to bring a stone tablet to Kengamine next to the observatory on Mt. Fuji, the highest peak of Japan
worshipped as its symbol from ancient times.]

 

昭和49年8月20日、富士山頂にひとつの句碑が建立された。それは、古来より崇められてきた日本の象徴である最高峰に、

俳人であった祖父の夢を叶える為に、測候所の脇の剣ヶ峰に句碑を運び上げる、無謀ともいえる父親のプロジェクト。
