1976 Kayamori in Asuka.jpg

I took this trip without any prior knowledge of this place. I went up the Asuka River and reached Kayamori. I had no knowledge of the history of this place; however, I was amazed by the quietness and the magnificent atmosphere that surrounded this residential neighborhood. No tourists were there. I was left with the strong impression of a housewife that I saw in a cooking apron sweeping the old small road. I heard the sound of a stream, and I sat on a stone bridge. As I sat on the bridge, the October air was cool and refreshing.
