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.]
