- In Beijing with the statue of Ren-Sha -
I was age 5, even before elementary school when my grand mother gave me this cartoon book called "Sai-Yu-Ki". That was the cartoon book about the Chinese Priest's adventurous trip to Afghanistan and India to obtain Buddhism Book to China. In this book, of course more than half fiction, other than this priest existed in Chinese History and he travelled to India to get Buddhism book to localize Buddhism to China. In the story, this priest accompanies three monster guards, Monkey God, Pig God, and Sand Monster God. This was the story of Monkey God having miraculous power and fight against evil monsters to protect his master priest to safely bring Indian Buddhism Books to China.
In addition to this "Monkey God" story, I read a lot of Chinese Historical Books in junior and senior high days, such as "3 Countries", "Sui-Fu -Story of Private Organization fight against old and corrupted government-", etc... So, in addition to the fact that China is my wife's home country, I did not feel China to be foreign country for long time.
In there, I can share the feeling of old Japanese people so eager to get out of Japan to go live in China. China has dynamism which Japan does not have. The country is definitely one of my favorite.
