A blog of Japan. You can see Japanese daily life and scenery through my camera. All photos are taken in Funabashi city and surround.
Funabshi-bridge is a bridge which is over ebi-river.It is near to the mouth of the river.There are lovely objects of Kappa on the bridge.Kappa is a Japanese legendary creatures that live in river.
Very interesting figures, especially the 1st one.
I have a sake set, made on Shikoku a long time ago, with the cups in the form of a male and female kappa. I haven't had any hot sake in a long time (cold either, actually!).
I love myth and legend and the image is very well tajen.
I never heard about kappa before... There are so many things about Japan that I don't know... Thank you Nobu for enlighting my poor knowledge...
Weird but very interesting creature. I love myths and legends and would love to find a book about Japanese ones. In English, of course :) _____ Please vote for the March theme, if you haven't yet. And please help spread the word too! :)
