箱根八里

第一章 昔の箱根

箱根の山は 天下の険
函谷関も 物ならず
万丈の山 千尋の谷
前に聳え 後に支う
雲は山をめぐり 霧は谷をとざす
昼猶闇き 杉の並木
羊腸の小径は 苔滑か
一夫関に当るや 万夫も開くなし
天下に旅する 剛毅の武士
大刀腰に 足駄がけ
八里の岩根 踏み鳴らす
斯くこそありしか 往時の武士

第二章 今の箱根

箱根の山は 天下の阻
蜀の桟道 数ならず
万丈の山 千尋の谷
前に聳え 後に支う
雲は山をめぐり 霧は谷をとざす
昼猶闇き 杉の並木
羊腸の小径は 苔滑か
一夫関に当るや 万夫も開くなし
山野に狩する 剛毅の壮士
猟銃肩に 草鞋がけ
八里の岩根 踏み破る
斯くこそありけれ 近時の壮士

The Hakone Route

Chapter 1. Past Hakone
Hakone is world-famous impassably steep mountain.
It is incomparably steeper than Hangu Pass.
Very high mountains and bottomless ravines
exist ahead and behind.
Mountains are surrounded by clouds, and ravines are hiding in mist.
The row of cedar trees are dark even during the daytime.
The winding path are covered with slippery moss.
If 1 person keep closing the gate, it cannot open even by 10,000 persons.
A strong warrior, who travels around the world
with a long sword and high clogs,
stomps crag of Hakone.
A warrior used to be so.

Chapter 2. Present Hakone
Hakone is world-famous impassably narrow road.
It is incomparably narrower than Baoxie Plank Road.
Very high mountains and bottomless ravines
exist ahead and behind.
Mountains are surrounded by clouds, and ravines are hiding in mist.
The row of cedar trees are dark even during the daytime.
The winding path are covered with slippery moss.
If 1 person keep closing the gate, it cannot open even by 10,000 persons.
A strong man, who hunts in the fields and mountains
with a shotgun and straw sandals,
stomps crag of Hakone.
A man should be so.
