Maezawa village, Minamiaizu Town in late winter, Feb. 28, 2016 (晩冬の前沢集落、南会津 2016年2月28日)

Today, I visited Maezawa village of Minamiaizu Towm. It has been a warm winter across the country, and the same was in this village. It had only a third of snow compared to the usual winter as local people said.

Photo above shows how it looked like in the village today. Very little snow left facing a spring just coming ahead.

The village features "magariya" which means L-shaped house as you can see in the picture above. This village has 13 of these magariya houses passed down from old times and it was designated as one of the National Preservation Districts of Important Traditional Buildings.

The Tateiwa River (picture above) flows quietly beside the village with its dark emerald-green color.

Even a watermill stands just in front of the spring. (Picture above)

Adatara Mountains and the Abukuma River in mid-winter, Feb. 3, 2016 (2月の阿武隈川と安達太良連峰 2016年2月3日)

Today, it was a clear but cold day in the morning, and I visited Chieko-Ohashi Bridge in Nihonmatsu City for the second time this winter following last December.

Photo above shows the Abukuma River and Adatara Mountains in the back viewed from Chieko-Ohashi Bridge in Nihonmatsu City. Since I left home late today and got there shortly after noon, the cloud over the mountains started to develop. But still I like this scenery of mountains and the river.

On the way to Chieko-Ohashi Bridge, I found another viewpoint for Mt. Adatara and the river near Yasuhara Bridge in Koriyama City as shown above. This was also beautiful.
智恵子大橋に行く途中、阿武隈川と安達太良山が見れる場所が、もう一つありました。郡山の安原橋の近くです。(写真) この景色も、素敵に思いました。
