Photography『Yotsuya no Senmaida, Japan』(2020)

The 20th century can be said to be an era in which unprecedented environmental destruction has advanced due to excessive production/consumption and chaotic development.

It has been reported that the burning of fossil fuels such as oil and coal causes forests to die due to acid rain all over the world.

Besides, carbon dioxide contained in exhaust gas from automobiles covers the Earth and does not allow the heat of the sun to escape to the outside so that the Earth warms like a greenhouse.

These phenomena are also called the greenhouse effect and global warming. Under these circumstances, environmental awareness, that is, eco-awareness is increasing.

We have to think about it.

p.s. Travel through the original scenery of Japan on July 3, 2020.

Notable Points

Hommaru Palace is constructed in the “Shoin-zukuri” architectural style, in which the structure and design of rooms, such as the ceiling, transom windows, decorative fixtures, and partition paintings, all vary according to the room’s status and use.

Note the structural beauty of the warrior-style Shoin-zukuri, said to have been completed in the early Edo period, and the masterful technique of modern artisans that restored it.

『Mt. Osiyama Trail 』▲777.3m

 Oshiyama had a fort built from the Middle Ages and was called “Mineyama Fort”. Locally, it is called “Ontake-sama”. The Mineyama village at the trailhead is located on the mountainside with an altitude of 670m and was opened by Ota Zaemon Taro Sahiko  in the middle ages.

Photography『By The Handa Canal』(2020)

The Handa Canal is located off the Kinuura Port. In the Edo period, this natural harbor was named “Koromogaura”. As this was a natural port, many large cago ships frequently visited.

The Brewing industry prospred in this time period and both “sake” and vineger were shipped to Edo (Tokyo) through the Handa Canal.

“Sake lees vinegar”, made from “sake lees” was first created and produced from this area, which became an essential ingredient for Edo style sushi.
