上文回顧:三分之二的環島(上)

❼赤柱→淺水灣 📏3.6km 🕑1435–1535

「南區海濱長廊」的南方起點是赤柱,也是三分二環島的後半。顧名思義,多半沿著海邊走,地勢平坦。可是身體和裝備都變差了,不見得輕鬆,只能走一步算一步。


原擬路線

臺灣流行環島,最強是徒步。徒步環臺灣要六七星期,環港島只需一天。現在沒事不能赴臺,至少可以環港島。策劃時設限如下:一,全程徒步。二,只走人路,不走車道。三,盡可能走岸邊,邊走邊看海。四,啟程看日出,結尾觀日落。

無聊做個行路撚

年華已去,素無練跑。幸好窮極無聊,半天就擬好行程。柴灣出發,翻山南下石澳半島。之後西進,經大潭、赤柱、淺水灣、香港仔。抵華貴邨後北上,經瀑布灣,數碼港、沙灣、西環泳棚,最後以堅尼地城卑路乍灣海濱為終點,剛好由港鐵藍線東端走到西端。全程四十多公里,連午飯預計只花約十二小時。徵得旅伴,大家都不住港島,很難大清早摸黑到柴灣出發。只好早一天投宿Y-Loft,區內唯一旅館。

❶柴灣墳場→砵甸乍山 📏3km 🕑0600-0650

原擬直奔小西灣海濱,但會錯過山上日出。棄海取山,又不能平視旭日初升。山路短,海路長,所以改打歌連臣角道上山。之前來過幾次看火葬,格外親切。山中有個晨樂亭,免費沖茶給山友飲用。這亭就像民初的二厘館,比大帽山端記茶樓、南丫島阿婆豆腐花都簡陋。

我們沒停下來的閒情,從亭側爬樓梯。每走一百級,梯級上就有級數提示,該是山友所畫。走了三百多級,身後滿是高樓,擋住維港。一直到五百級後,置身砵甸乍山觀景台,才能擺脫那些住人的墓碑。縱使天暗雲低,仍能北望將軍澳,南眺石澳。爬升二百多米就如此開闊,難得。


In part 1, I have elaborated all evidences that prove the 1792-theory, and put aside the timing of Yoshiro’s demise. We will examine the remaining three arguments that support the Blade of the Immortal’s main story takes place in 1782, and more importantly, why and how did they come to be?

Dark Horse told you so, but she is not always accurate

Who told you the story takes place in 1782 (Tenmei 2)? Manji? Rin? Hiroaki Samura? From volume 1 to 31, none of them tells or implies it. Yes, it was the “about the translation” in the comics by Dark Horse Comics told you so.

Since it is the official…


Almost all Chinese media and websites tell that Blade of the Immortal, the infamous manga by Samura Hiroaki, takes place from 1792 to 1793 in the feudal Japan. The author has never made it that clear, but the Japanese fans have studied the manga closely and come to the same conclusion, when this work was still being serialized in monthly Afternoon Comics in early 2000s.

Contrary to this common belief, I am intrigued that the Western fans have a different answer. Dark Horse Comics, the English publisher of the Blade of the Immortal, has educated their readers that the story…
