Unfortunately like much of historic Japan, it has either been destroyed by nature or war, or eaten up by modernity (i.e., concrete and flashing lights) Crying or Very sad

Yeah, the ice skating rink on the top of Mt. Hiei and the kiddie type theme park at Momoyama castle pretty much killed it for me.

I remember my first shock like this. I had taken a local train and the Kanjo-sen around Osaka for a quiet morning of site-seeing at Osaka castle. Had a really good time and was enjoying myself alot - until I came across the elevators....

I am sure they knew.
Recently a Korean Pachinko billionair took over a Shinto Shrine in Kyoto and destroying it.

This is the biggest issue in Japanese internet community right now.

I heard about that. It became a big problem over at 2 Channel.

They're really trying to destroy as much of the Japanese culture as they can. Koreans....

shikisoku,

I am surprised that was even possible. Though there was something similar that happened here in the U.S., in North Carolina specifically. There was a Catholic Church that moved its congregation so the building was sold. A group bought it and turned it into a bar, converting the confessionals into toilets. There was plenty of protest of course.


平和,

マット

If I live in foreign country, I respect the local culture.
If I don't respect their culture, they won't respect my culture.

Aye, There's the rub. Modern society breeds persons of no culture for the most part. This leads to the adoption of the least desirable cultural aspects in the search for identity. John

As usual and through all the time. High culture was always somehow "elites only" and in our society- as in all societies through ages- elite is a minority, most probably under 1% of total population.
