Rice field art in neighborfood, Miharu Town, June 29, 2015 (2015年6月29日 身近な 田んぼアート、三春町 )

In my neighborhood, on the way of my daily cycling course, I found a marvelous rice field art today in Miharu Town.
いつも自転車で通っている三春町の練習コース脇に、素敵な 田んぼアート が出現しました。

And then, above is the rice field art developed in the countryside of Miharu Town. The art depicts Kibitan (left) which is the popular mascot character of Fukushima Pref. and Miharugoma (right) which is the traditional local handicraft of Miharu district. A black Miharugoma is considered as a talisman for raising healthy children, and white one for healthy life of elderly people.

Superb views of Lake Inawashiro and pretty white water flower in a stream, June 7, 2015 (湖南町 からの 猪苗代湖、および 清水川 の バイカモ 2015年6月7日)

Today it was an extremely clear early summer day and I visited Konamachi District of Koriyama City. I pedaled my bike over Goreibitsu Pass and down to the shore of Lake Inawashiro which was the area of the district. As I expected I could see superb views of Lake Inawashiro from some different viewpoints. I also found water plant with pretty white flowers in a small stream.
本日は、またとない初夏の晴天で、私は、郡山市の 湖南町 を訪ねました。行くときは、御霊櫃峠 を越えて、猪苗代湖畔に下りました。期待通り、猪苗代湖 の景色がとても素敵でした。また、湖南町で、小さな小川に、バイカモ(梅花藻)の白い花がたくさん咲いているのを見ました。

At first I climbed up to the Goreibitsu Pass which is about 830 meters above sea level. Above photo shows today's clear and large view of Lake Inawashiro from there.

Then I went down to the shore of the lake and found superb calm view of the lake as shown above. It was almost windless today.

On the opposite shore across the lake I could see eight small wind turbines far ahead on top of the mountain as shown above. This may be the Aizuwakamatsu Windfarm which is scheduled to start operation this year. The power is 16MW which supports 9,850 households.

On the way back home I stopped at a small stream called Shimizugawa. It was so small that the width of the stream was less than one meter. In this small stream I found many pretty white flowers floating on the clear water stream as shown above. This flower is of water plant called Baikamo or Ranunculus nipponicus var. submersus.
帰りに、湖南町 の 清水川 という、小さな小川に寄りました。ここは、幅が1mもない程の、小さな小川です。写真のように、水面にバイカモ (梅花藻)の白い花が、たくさん咲いていました。地元の人は、金魚草とも呼んでいます。
Welcome! 福が満開、福のしま。
