The Kurashiki River was flowing calmly through the Bikan historical quarter in Kurashiki. As I stood on the stone bridge and looked out over the river, I noticed a parent and child on the riverbank. They were at the steps leading down to the water's surface. They were happily looking at the water from there.
I could see ripples on the surface of the water in front of the parent and child. The ripples were probably made by carp living in the river. They are watching the carp swimming in the water. And the carp are watching the tourists who came to this area from the river. I can't help feeling that they are looking at each other.
