    Allow me to be the first European to send you a message where the SNOW-
    CAPPED MOUNTAIN is intended to represent Croagh Patrick, the Irish
    mountain known for pilgrimage, which is right outside my home.

    Note, when you receive it, that I am not using a Japanese telecoms

    character, and its intended meaning in Japan.
