There is a hill in Nara, where a nice grove could grow. It might give shelter to the deers, birds, and human beings in hot summer days.

It might… if not some crazy Buddhist monks and Shinto priests burning it to the ground every year in January.

As a result, only grass grows on the hill, and that’s why it is called Wakakusa-yama (若草山) – a Young Grass Mountain.
