At last: The countdown to the Aerial Ropeway
A change on the mountain's power relationships
妖怪の山のふもとから、山の上にある守矢神社までを結ぶ「索道」がついに完成し、近々にも運行が開始されそうなところまできている。この索道を巡っては、山を二つに割る激しい論議がなされてきたが、少し前に八坂神奈子氏が大天狗を訪れてからは議論が鎮静化、工事が粛々と進むこととなった。 The "ropeway" that connects the foot of Youkai Mountain to Moriya Shrine at its peak is finally complete, and it appears it will begin service operations soon as well. While there had been many heated debates surrounding the ropeway that split the mountain in two, after a recent visit by Ms. Kanako Yasaka to the Great Tengu, the debates finally calmed down and construction began to proceed smoothly.
だが、ここから大変なのは下っ端だ。正式な辞令が降りたという話は無いが、どうも天狗で自衛を担当している白狼天狗の中でも特に下っ端の者たちに「今度からまた仕事が増える」という話が内々に届いているらしい。 However, it will be tough for the underlings from here on out. While there has been no official appointment, the belief that "There'll be even more work for us now" has begun to circulate among the white wolf tengu who are in charge of security, particularly the underlings.
「なんか警備の話は聞いた事あったけど、そういうのって大抵理由を教えてもらえないから、こっちも腑に落ちなくって。だいたい外のやつが山に入ってくるってさぁ……」とは、ある白狼天狗のぼやきだ。上層部が決めたことの尻ぬぐいに不満を覚える者は多い。天狗の組織も完ぺきではなく、改革が常に必要だと改めて考えさせられる。 "I did hear something about security, but they generally don't tell us the reasons for things like this. I also have some doubts about the whole thing. In the first place, letting outsiders into the mountain is a little..." were the complaints of one white wolf tengu. Many people feel discontent with having to pay the consequences for the decisions made by the upper class. Even the Tengu society is far from perfect, so it might be worth considering once again whether a reform is in order.
