Photographer's Note

This place is Mino-machi in Mino City, Gifu Prefecture.
Mino-cho prospered as a town of the water transportation using Nagara-gawa River in Edo period. An old town is preserved well here. Therefore, when we visit here, we can imagine the prosperity of a town at that time.

The symbol of the prosperity is Udatsu. Udatsu is a firewall. To prevent a fire of a house next door from spreading, it was set up between the house and the house. It came to compete for the firewall as a status symbol.

I was seen like five dragons with which Udatsu competed for the size.
