Kusaki Dam 031

Last weekend, Kevin, Eric, and I went on the Watarase River Valley railway to a tiny little station called Godo up in the mountains. We went for a nice walk/hike to Kusaki Dam and got to enjoy lots of local scenery. Despite the fact that Japan has been heavily forested and its rivers diverted and dammed and developed, it still continues to be a beautiful place.

I randomly picked Godo station to get off at, because It has the same characters as Kobe (神戸). Weird, huh?

On our way back to Godo, we walked past a house that had chicken coops and pheasants right out front.

Maybe you can see Kevin off to the right there… right before he decided to take a swim in the river.
