A little about myself.

I also contribute articles to IT magazines about Open Source Software as a core member of Japan Apache Users Group. I've been in computer related fields from 1978. starting in college, nuclear physics major, I had to take a class in FORTRAN and that was it, I was hooked on the machines. I started working first as an application programmar at a system development
company. Then moved on to a system integration company, and specializing in data communication, small & mid size systems. I run a small intranet at home, a router, Windows Servers, Windows Desktops and CentOS Linux . The Linux runs DNS, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and POP3 making it nice for software testing and development.

Mt. Gongen

There are many Mt. Gongen, one of the most popular mountain names in Japan. I went to one of them is located in the northern part of Uenohara in Yamanashi Prefecture.

From Uenohara Station on Chuo-honsen line, I took a bus headed for Youdake. After got down the bus, I found a small sign to Mt. Gongen soon. After a short precipitous zigzag path, a gentle path continued for a while.


There was a small old shinto shrine. I continued to climb up over there.


The weather was not good and there wasn't much to see from the top of Mt. Gongen. but I enjoyed the edge walk for the first time in one month.
