October 2014: Aso Shrine, Kumamoto Castle, And Home
Typhoon Warnings, Springs, And A Magnificent Castle
I Could Live Here:
Aso Shrine, Kumamoto Castle, And Home
The street north of the shrine is lined with little natural springs. Some have cheesy waterwheels and statues in them; others were lovely.
According to a sign, rainwater collects in the huge ancient volcano cone and reaches the surface in natural springs -- some, according to the sign, shooting two meters into the air.
