Takeshima Travel Diary (2) (San'in Shimbun)

The view of the Yabi River, as if painted solid Prussian blue, and Mount Jozan, like a towering dragon, presents such a mystical scene that is quite at odds with the coastal location. In spite of this unusual scenery behind Saigo, because disgusting obscene flowers scattered . Mount Jozan must be weeping and bloomed profusely at the other side of the town. This mountain is washed by the Yabi River, which trickles down gently and transports the famous Oki cedars downstream. Who could not be reminded of Rankyo Gorge at the sight of woodcutters riding on cedar rafts and traveling with the flow?
