Hakone Town is a small hot-spring town in mountainous landscape near Mt.
Fuji. But in 17-18th century this town was also known as the "Hakone
barrier" in Tokaido High Road, defending Edo (Tokyo). Hakone is often
mentioned as a symbol of breakthrough. Shu Minari, the Japanese CD-ROM
project leader, lives near Hakone and is planning to take photos of
Hakone landscapes for a label and jacket design of 1.1.2 CD Japanese
version. When the project creates the 1.1.2 Hakone CD, it will show it
to Hakone Town Administration, Hakone Tourist Association and other
relevant organisations, and ask them if they can place the 1.1.2 Hakone
CDs at souvenir shops since we can also make a 1.1.2 Hakone CD English
version and other language versions.
