first image a glass walkway in china's tianmen mountain national park all photographs © dingyun juan, courtesy tianmenshan a new trail path in china's tianmen mountain national park offers visitors an unusual experience: the floor and rails of the pathway are composed of glass, offering walkers a vertigo-inducing look at the sheer drops and wilderness below. the walkway spans three feet wide, composed of glass 2.5-inches thick. measuring approximately 200 feet (61 meters) long, the walkway is raised almost a mile into the air at about 4700 feet (1430 meters), inviting comparisons to the grand canyon 'skywalk' in arizona, USA. the passage joins the west cliff at the yunmeng fairy summit, where tianmen mountain and zhang jiajie meet. visitors to the tianmen mountain bridge are requested to wear shoe covers to keep the glass transparent and clean. views looking down the 200-foot path
Life in Ashio would never have been easy, and certainly not at the peak of production around 1910 when 39,000 people called it home. Crammed into a narrow river valley, blasted by freezing winter winds while living in uninsulated plywood apartments, many would have turned to the ‘kamisama’ or Gods for spiritual succor. Japanese religious beliefs are a little complex- ask most people here what their religion is and they’ll say they have none. To judge from that and popular culture, the country seems remarkably secular. There is no institute with regular services like Church, there is no one book of mythology and rules like the Bible, no central leader like the Pope. Religion in Japan is more of an ethereal thing, hard to pin down but most definitely there, its ceremonies done without really considering them ‘religion’, they’re more just part of traditional family life.

Although some of these mysteries are only on the list as a result of their infamy, some are genuinely baffling, and if you manage to solve any of them leave a comment below so that we can cross them off.
