Places to rest

 As I was looking that the buildings above the dam, I noticed that one of them had a crane on the roof. It sat their for the entire time that I was looking at it. The Naka River seems to support quite a few large birds but not as many as were around the river in Sendai.
Europe and other places have stone circles, but Japanese parks often have log circles, although sometimes what looks like a log is actual a concrete sculpture of a log. I was a little mystified by them at first, but then I discover the reason for having. They are a place for children to play. The kids seem to like to walk around them stepping only on the tops of the logs. In some parks they are not circles but long wavy snake like shapes.
