On the way home

 This is the edge of a large park and it shows a typical scene. When they have to cut down a tree for some reason, the stump is left with to just rot away. Sometimes they will start growing again, but usually they will just gradually fade away. This one is being slowly covered with some sort of vine.
 This is a stele commemorating the establishment of the park. It is named after one of the Emperors, Antoku, who was said to have been in this area after advocating. There is a very active historical society in this town and my wife and I are thinking about joining it. Also in the picture, right in the center is an airplane that is in the process of landing at Fukuoka Airport, which is less than 10 kilometers away.
This is part of the path along the riverside.
