There is a park called Rakuju-en in front of Mishima Station. The park includes Rakujukan, a Kyoto-style building built in 1890 in the style of a sukiya-style house on stilts, and Kohama Pond, which was formed by spring water. The luxurious Rakujukan is worth seeing, but the highlight of the park, which covers approximately 72,768 square meters, is Kohama Pond.
Although it is said that the amount of water in the pond has been decreasing in recent years, on this day the pond was brimming with water. The spring water was flowing with a roaring sound, and photographers were camped around the pond with large lenses that made the 40mm lens I was wearing look like a child's plaything. It seemed to be because of the heavy rain experienced a few days before.
The small island floating in Kohama Pond was floating in the water on this day when the water level was high. To cross the island, we had to cross a narrow stone bridge. It is scary to cross a stone bridge without any handrails. Why is it that the harder I try not to fall, the more I feel like I will fall?
