Photographed in Lake Chuzenji (中禅寺湖) in Nikko city. This lake is said to have appeared 20, 000 years ago when Mt. Nantai erupted and blocked the river. The exit of this lake is Kegon falls (華厳の滝). This 97m waterfall is too high for fishes to climb up. According to Futaarasan Shrine's record, there weren't any fish in Lake Chuzenji until 1878 when aquaculturing trout and the other species took place.
The bridge shown in the photo was damaged and it was too dangerous to walk. So the owner tied the entrance with strings.
If you want to see more photos of this beautiful lake, here we are.
This is a Outdoor Wednesday, Watery Wednesday, and ABC Wednesday entries. "D" is for "damaged".
