(Small Notes for the Issue)
"Scenic Spots in Izu" (Shizuoka) Atami-baien, ume blossom garden, was opened to the public in 1886. The ume blossoms there bloom annually in the middle of January, earlier than others. Shokeidaru falls is one of the seven falls of the Kawazugawa river in Izu. There is a statue of Izu-no odoriko (the Izu dancer, a novel by Kawabata Yasunari, 1899-1972, the winner of Nobel Prize in literature in 1968) in front of the falls.
