On the Banks of the Oi River

The Oi river changes its name to the Katsura river as it passes under the Togetsukyo bridge in Arashiyama, Kyoto.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Interesting scene. I notice all the firewood there. I guess this place deals with boats and firewood.

I like those covered cruise boats. It looks a little cold to be cruising though. A really fine B&W image.
