Sedona Rainbow

As if Sedona isn’t colorful enough, nature has to go and do this too.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial (AKA Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Dōmu)

When I visited the Atomic Bomb Dome in 2013, work was being done on it. The construction was not to bring it back to its former, pre WW2 state; instead, it was to keep it from falling to pieces during an earthquake.

Takadanobaba’s Big Box on a rainy night early in 2010

I think I took this one from McDonald’s seven years ago. Perhaps I was on my way back from teaching at Naval Air Facility Atsugi, and I was just waiting for the rain to slow down a bit.

Rain fell most of the time we were in Takayama, including when we did the Higashiyama Walking Course (東山遊歩道) where today’s photo came from.

Rain drain

Senjokaku’s draining system

A regular rain gutter would not cut it for a place like Senjokaku. For starters, the roof is massive and Miyajima gets a lot of rain.

This ingenious system turns a waterfall coming off the roof into a bedrock stream.

Unfortunately (now, for purposes of this photo, but fortunately then for purposes of my dryness), the rain had slowed by the time I took this photograph so you can’t see the water cascading off the roof so much.
