japan 2011:03 agematsu Up

My commute from Agematsu to the ...
... Kiso Observatory is 14.1 km ...
... along a valley into the mountains
The hills are steep
There is always flowing water nearby
Agematsu lies in the Kiso River valley
It's not much bigger than Randolph, VT
Many farmers grow rice here
This is the main highway
I live in one of these buildings
A kitsune (fox) shrine
Why a scroll in the mouth?
A grateful turtle is involved in ...
... the legend associated with ...
... this gorge called Nezame-no-Toko ...
... with its pillow-shaped blocks
The Kiso is famous for the hinoki ...
... a type of cedar, tall and straight ...
... used for many purposes
Ono-no-taki waterfall
Train station's stai..w Nezame-no-toko ...
... and Ono-no-taki
Manhole cover celebrates old forest train
Looking up the valley to Kiso Obs. at dusk
