Silent Silhouette

Lake Suwa_end

This is a shot of Nagano Prefecture’s Lake Suwa just after sunset.  The statue is of Princess Yaegaki, who is a key figure in Honcho Nijushiko.  Honcho Nijushiko is a five-act drama that was first performed in 1766.  At the end of the story, Yaegaki walks across a frozen Lake Suwa to save her lover from a violent death.
