ou! Mr White describes the curious mixture of religion andirreverence on the part of his men. One of them took the troubleto carry up a small stone image of Jizo as a votive offering infulfilment of a pledge, to be set up at the foot of the Jizo-butsu peak, and yet he seemed to see no inconsistency in digging forfancied stores of money in the ground close by. To rob the dead,and yet toil uj) with a heavy image to be dedicated to the god, didnot strike them as at all incongruous. After a number of unsuccessful expeditions, Japanese orEuropean, Ho-wo-zan was not again ascended imtil October 1917,by Mr Daunts Kobe party (Messrs H. E. Daunt, F.R.G.S.,F. J. Gausden, and B. Nakano), led by three active and determinedgoriki from Ashiyasu. Climbing from the north side of the finalpeak, they descended by the route above described. A mostentertaining and well-illustrated account of this fine expeditionappears in Mr Daunts magazine Inaka, vol. viii., 1918. (Far-Eastern Advertising Agency, Kobe.)
