Niitakayama nobore 1208/ニイタカヤマノボレ1208

Continuation of the previous blog.
How to transmit the signals?
An antenna-like structure used to be put at each top. 
It had a regular triangle shape with a side of 18 meters and 9 tons of  weight.
It was preserved well until the 1970s, however these were removed after one of them was dropped due to aging.
There were four antenna wires between the antenna things. 
The wires leaded to the towers and there were weights at the end of the wires(See the photo below).
The wires were flexible for wind, hence there were four weights to make the wires stretch so that the wire could adjust its length.


According to the locals, they heard the sound of the weight landing on the ground when the wind was strong.
There was a transmission room and generator room in the middle of the three towers. 
The other antenna wires which were connected from the center of these four wires were connected with the transmission room, so that  the signals could be transmitted.

Believe it or not, Hario Radio Tower might have received and transmitted the signals “Niitakayama nobore 1208”, which was the code word of the Imperial Japanese Navy, meaning  “attack on Pearl Harbor”. 
It literally means “climb up Mt. Niitaka December 8th(the highest mountain in Japan (located in Taiwan))”, though. 
There was no paper evidence, however, there are many pieces of verbal evidence.

Another December 8th is coming soon this year.
Although Japan has not gotten involved in the war after the WWII, we still face dangers to get tangled in the war because of the geographical location and aggressive neighboring countries.
Why don’t you take this opportunity to think about ways to communicate with the neighboring countries and prevent us from getting involved in the disputes or wars?

第2次大戦後、日本は戦争に巻き込まれていないけれども、日本の地理的な位置や、攻撃的な近隣諸国の為に、 依然として戦争に巻き込まれる危険性に直面しています。
