Shy fish

shirakawa-go503

This instant pic was taken in Shirakawa-go. The town has a system of drainage woven throughout the town leading both to the river and to rice paddies. When the snow from the mountains melts, it waters the farms, quite ingenious. There are fish in some of the mini-canals along the streets, and they tend to gather under little overpasses for pedestrians. In the photo above you can see the shy-guys all gathered together.
