Yakushima Island Part I

I've always hated anime. I never really gave it much of a chance as it combined two things that I didn't care for: cartoons and words I couldn't understand.

One night I was at my friend Charlie's house, hanging out in the living room. Someone in his family put on Hayao Miyazaki's anime mastepiece, "Spirited Away".

At first I ignored the movie, giving it just a small fraction of my attention. By the time it was over I was totally enthralled. The story was fantastic, the characters were great, but most of all the movie was beautifully drawn.

Moore about the Bao-an temple from travelguide.com: \"Located across the street from the Confucius Temple, this Taoist temple is dedicated to the god of medicine. Built in 1830, it has quite a fascinating history. Early immigrants from Fujien Province brought the statue of the god to Taiwan in the late 18th century. During the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, the temple was used as a language school and factory. After the Japanese discontinued their use of the site, it was neglected until it was finally refurbished in the early 1900s.\"
