Hida Takayama’s long-legged giant statue (Ashinaga Zo 足長像)

Ashinagazo in Hida Takayama, Japan

Yesterday’s companion is this snappy fellow. These two are supposed to appear when it is raining or the weather is otherwise turning for the worse. I believe it. Rain fell on us most of the time we were in Takayama. Of course, it was rainy season at the time, but I’m sure the rain had more to do with the presence of these two giants.

    Hida Takayama is my favourite place to visit in Japan and in my home prefecture of Gifu. It is a small beautiful city known for its traditional architecture and crafts.
