2004 Passing of time.jpg

It is currently suspended, but in our research room at Tokyo University of the Arts, we used to visit China once every two years with our students. At that time, we decided to visit the former Manchukuo, the current northeast region of China, so I studied about the place before leaving for China. It was emphasized in the guide book that Harbin has resemblance of the former Manchukuo, however, the actual Harbin I saw was modernized and people were vibrant with their lives. But, only at the Confucian temple was it in a quiet surrounding and I felt as though time had stopped moving forward at the temple.
