Kawaba village is located in the place where rich nature and tranquil fields and gardens surround.

Since I got a chance to visit there, a fog going across the mountains have been looked like a dragon rising into the sky to me.

I met a sculpture of a dragon in Hotaka Shrine founded in 1755 in Yubara district.Sculpture and statues of Buddha exposed to a very long time taught me that they are not only objects made by human’s hands but also forms of nature. I skimmed off the supernatant from water , which reflects such beautiful landscapes of the village.
