Round JPN [ Day 25 ]

Lake Biwa is an important source of water supply that is called “ a water vessel of Kansai”. It is the largest lake in this country that has been the foundation of the life of people from old times.

Shirahige shrine which was built on the west coast of this lake has been keeping its eye on the lives of people for 2000 years together with the lake. People around here give thanks to the blessing and pray for the eternity of it.

Stood at the water’s edge and faced toward a torii. A gust of wind blew away the low-hanging clouds over the surface of the lake and an aquatic bird flew away from the top of the gate. Shortly after that, sunlight streamed through the clouds.
