A beautiful moment in Arashiyama, a key moment in our travels. Outside the path through the bamboo the Oi river looks to the east and during the evening of the calm current the subtle sounds and sights of traditional Wasen style Japanese boats move up and down the river.
As the sun sets and the scene begins. An act that takes place in only 13 rivers in the country. Comorant fishermen prepare their boats for what was tradition but now as ceremony.
