They say Japanese and the Ainu language have nothing in common, but the Ainu word for god is "kamui" and Japanese is "kami". BTW, it's cold today, as in it's "samui". It must be pretty damned brutal to live as homeless people in the very samui climate off the borders of Siberia...cold enough to hunt bear and wear the fur, I'd think.
As for the Black Popes in Japan (I learn something new every day)...well, it sounds like they commit themselves to living there to apprentice in a spiritual sense, but why? Is Japan a romantic place...by that, I mean "otoko no roman (a man's idea of romance, to be illuminated)"? It sounds so Buddhist (an imported religion), doesn't it, to want to be a pure, blemish-free, superhuman perfect man?
