Komagawa Weir No1

川の国埼玉 魅力100選より抜粋

高麗川一号堰周辺は、市でも一、二を争う清流スポットです。堰の先に見える城山には、全県を通じても見ることのできない珍しい動植物が存在します。川の水 は驚くほど透明で、近付くと、そこに様々な生物が息づいていることに気付かされます。特に夏に訪れると、セミの鳴き声が聞こえ「古き良き時代」にタイムス リップしたかのような、錯覚を覚えます。市街地より数分で堰周辺へは辿りつけますが、都会的な市街地と癒しの効果のあるこの地のギャップにはいつも驚かさ れます。

坂戸市の頂、113,4mの城山と清流高麗川の折りなす自然美がすばらしいです。水量の多い時期は、柔らかな緑と清らかな流れが訪れる人の心を癒してくれます。
背後に地元西坂戸や多和目地区のシンボルである城山を有し、初夏の新緑と秋の紅葉が織り成すコントラストは絶景です。夏場の水遊びや魚釣りでも賑わいを見せており、地元住民の憩いのスポットとなっています。

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
