Blossoms with Stars
You can enjoy a perfect spring by the grace of some pinky clouds along the road,
plenty of petals flying in the air,
innumerable blossoms in full bloom,
and, above all, countless shining stars in the dark blue sky.
"Look, gentian flowers are in full bloom. It's quite autumn now."
said Campanella, pointing out of the window.
Among short grasses along the railroad, they saw plenty of pretty purple gentian flowers which looked as if they had been carved out of moon-stone.
"I'd try to get off and get back with them?"
said Giovanni excitedly.
"It's too late. They've gone away."
No sooner had Campanella said so than another mass of shining gentians went away. And the next moment, one after another, countless cups of gentian flowers with yellow bottoms went away springing up or showering down. Meanwhile, lights of sankaku-hyos are endlessly in line along their way, some blurred, some blazing.
Every morning when Eos,
the goddess of dawn,
with the rosy fingers,
drops stars and dews on the silence, Princess Andromeda
is cleansing herself alone in the lake.
in the water as pure and clean as she,
"May our home country be in peace."
quietly, deeply and moderately,
before the south-eastern wind,
Here is the place where spring comes first in the world.
She comes up to the top of the tower overlooking Opal Gate.
Here comes the day when she blesses the coming of Spring.
"May our planet be blessed with breath of lives!
May everyone be blessed with glorious breeze!"
Aurora is going to fade into the sky of dawn with a bright melody of silence.
Silence is on the shore of the river, while water flows calmly.
The crown of flowers shining in the moonlight will come drifting to her in some time.
Will she pick it up with a smile when she finds it?
The building which seems to be a temple is the second Marae Celestial Gate,
which works only at night.
It is just starting to work, reflecting the full moon.
There are slight ripples of ice over the lake, where she has taken her boat.
Glows of aurora are creations of the harmony between the sun and the earth.
You can see them to hear the silent song of the universe.
Now calm, now wild. Now quiet, now loud.
It has been lasting since the oldest days.
She plays melodies reading the music above in the sky.
Every harmony carries its own melody and verse.
You can neither see nor hear the same melody again.
Nevertheless, the song lasts forever.
The Way to Fantasy Railroad
Fantasy Railroad runs through the field of light of stars.
It is not in cosmic space which is empty of anything, but in the world which is full of such familiar things as grasses, flowers, birds, utility poles and signals.
The water of the river is ever so transparent as to be invisible, whereas creatures like fish live in it.
There stand countless sankaku-hyos, which are supposed to be the marks for someone to devote himself to making a map of the world.
While a scholar tries to dig fossils out of stratums in order to prove that the world has really been there.
When we try to observe the world, however, we see nothing but vacuum of space with only stars floating in the sky.
I wonder how our real world look, in return, when they observe toward us far from their invisible world.
You can only hear a boat floating on the water,
waves lapping to the iceberg and whales chirping in the sea.
Under the boat in the transparent water, reflecting the light of aurora,
The ruins look as close as if they were within reach.
The couple, having traveled from far Pleiades, come to explore Flower Hill Palace
which may be, they hear, at the bottom around here.
Stopping rowing, they take a short rest to look up at the splendid curtain of light.
They may be talking about their travelling far beyond the aurora.
This is a picture of Jyodo-daira, where, some say, stars are seen most clearly in Japan.
I have been there many times since I was a high school student.
Some years ago, when I was walking from Azuma-lodge to the astronomic observatory under the full moon,
I happened to see a great many beautiful flowers of gentians in full bloom fantastically shining in the splendid moonlight.
I have never forgot the countless cups of madonna-blue, which I painted on the canvas of my memory.
The mythology tells:
Phoenix, with beautifully shining feathers,
on the last day of his life of five centuries,
throws himself into the blazing fire.
The painting tells:
Phoenix, with brilliantly shining feathers,
on the first day of his life for coming centuries,
is just flying up into the blessing sky.
You know why Phoenix is:
The symbol of blaze, revival, resurrection,
immortality and the sun.
Navigation around Stars
Some years ago, when I took a trip to Iriomote island in Okinawa,
I happened to see Milky Way and stars reflecting perfectly on the surface of the sea of the inlet.
It was the first experience for me. At this fancy sight I felt as if I were rolling a boat on the great river of Milky Way.
Stars were shining so fascinatingly just around my board, I was literally on the verge of jumping off into the starry world.
Hearty Welcome (white palace)

Hearty Welcome (Opal Gate)
The flaring aurora in the sky is lighting up brightly all around.
She always welcomes heartily the travelers who come far away from light-years' distance.
A young brother and a sister are coming soon this evening,
she hears, to explore the ruins of the city where their ancestors lived.
"We always welcome the descendants of the same origin on this planet.
Welcome to the earth! We heartily welcome you, our dear friends."
Hearty Welcome (Pacific)
The Opal Gate overlooks the grand ocean.
The sea, she hears,
goes farther to the South than the aurora goes and in the farther there is full of warmer sunlight.
She feels happy, looking over the sea and walking up the stone steps to the Gate.
"What explorers are coming today?"
"How far are they going to sail tomorrow?"
When he gallops on the ground,
his hoof tracks will change into springs of artistic inspirations.
When he flies in the sky,
a rider on his back will be able to reach Heaven.
The creature of intellect with strong white wings, born in the sea,
is free to travel on the ground and in the sky
like a swift wind, like a holy light.
Snow with Stars
You can enjoy a silent night By the grace of the quiet squeak of snow boots,
the subtle sound of her breathing the silence of snow-rabbit,
and, above all, complete silence of shining stars in the far sky.
The seashore here is very calm with only quiet sound of waves in the ocean.
The ruins of the Gate lies in peace in the moonlight.
In the old time it was opened to the moon and lots of people might have passed through it.
It will make you feel fantastic, sitting all alone on the ruins,
which seems to be breathing still.
The sea within atoll is very calm.
Floating with her ears on and in the water,
She can hear dolphins chatting and even fish and corals breathing.
The sea here, with countless lives in it, goes as far as the opposite side of the planet.
She loves to float in tranquility, feeling something identical with all lives on the whole planet.
Breezes with Stars
You can enjoy a cool evening by the grace of an UCHIWA-fan, YUKATA-wear,
a wind bell, a mosquito incense, a bamboo blind, an aired tea room
and, above all, plenty of glittering stars in the whole sky.
Traveling in the stars
"Yes. Oh, look ! Is that riverside lightened by the moonlight?"
Giovanni turned his face and saw silvery pampas grasses moving, fluttering and waving all around.
"No, the moon is not here. We see them shining by themselves because we are in the Milky Way."
Saying so, Giovanni felt something of great joy, whistled a melody of "Traveling in the stars",
tapped the floor with his feet, and then put his head out of the window
stretching his neck full to see what the water of the Milky Way really is.
He could not see anything at first.
But gradually he came to see the water was more transparent than crystal and hydrogen
and was flowing silently with ripples shining in purple and at times with waves sparkling in rainbow colors.
Meanwhile, the train was running among many sankaku-hyo towers standing with beautiful phosphorescent lights.
