Swanica explores Japan

Tuesday, March 06, 2007

When we went to Odawara to the orchards we saw those beautiful sewer covers and drain lids and tiles in the road, because we walk and bicycle everywhere. They make wonderful lids, especially the ones about the "Ume" flower for which Odawara is famous.

This is a small cover with an plum "ume" flower in Odawara.
(click on the image to increase the size).

Here they put some tiles from the Odawara castle in the road. Just somewhere close to the castle.

Here are some waterlilies in the castle's moot.

This is the castle. It is near the sea and has a beach.

Some more "Ume" flowers.

Lots of water in Odawara.

Another branch with "Ume" flowers.
