Traditionally, Kabuki skills are passed from older members of a family of actors to the younger members, down through the generations. But in 1969, the National Theater established the Kabuki Actor Taining Center to teach aspiring performers from outside the Kabuki world as well. The training program lasts two years and is free. A few participants join every second year, and after they graduate, they are eligible for a role on the Kabuki stage. Almost all of the actors shown here graduated from the Kabuki Actor Training Center.

    Bicycles in the City of Chengdu

    “In the last twenty years several of the city streets have been widened.†[68] On the modern, paved and widened streets photographed by Don Flaherty, bicycles now raced past rickshaws under the watchful gaze of modern police. “On the streets there are a few jeeps and civilian cars. At each bridge there is usually a broken-down truck, unable to make the grade. There are young Chinese, and foreigners of all ages on bicycles. There are many rickshaws: broken down public ones whose coolies wear straw sandals even in the coldest weather, and shiny private ones with pneumatic tires, upholstery, tiger skin lap robes, feather dusters and better dressed coolies.†[68-69]

    Landscapes of Japan, 02, Weathered granodiorite, Shirasakatage.

    Weathered granodiorite, Shirasakatage. -- In mountainous terrain weathered rock material, a major component of soil, is rapidly carried away downslope. The result is soil that is thin, poor and rocky. The eroded material may be deposited along a river farther downstream producing a floodplain, or it may be carried all the way to the sea. Because most Japanese rivers and streams are short and fast moving, much of the material goes to the sea. Agriculture is difficult in the mountainous parts of Japan because of steep slopes and poor soils, and much of this land remains covered by forest.
