Water town #1

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 21 August 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Gujohachiman 郡上八幡 is a small town in Gifu prefecture. It takes about 3 hours from Nagoya. I can't say the location is very convenient, but the town is all the more beautiful. This small town is famous for fine water. Yoshida River 吉田川 is really clean and houses are built right beside the river. Fishing is popular activity there. Ayu (or sweetfish) is main object of fishermen.

@Z: That is the good point of small towns. Things don't go in such a way in big cities, as you know.
