December 7, 2019, 12:00pm: Ise-ji north-south, day 5. Hello from the steps of the recently rebuilt Buddhist temple, Kojindo, near the peak of Yakiyama. The small temple was rebuilt just a few months ago to the tune of about $200,000. The copper roof was brand new, still yet to patinated by the elements. Planes fly. Forest animals shuffle. The afternoon song of a distant village plays just barely over loud speakers.
