Ink: On Tateyama, from Nihon Hyakumeizan (One Hundred Mountains of Japan) by Fukada Kyūya (1964):
I once stayed at the shrine office on Oyama and I will never forget the dawn and sunrise I saw on that occasion. As I watched, the mountain peaks all around seemed to wake into life as they floated above a sea of cloud. This sight convinced me instantly that Tateyama is one of the great mountains of the world.
