Yamaguchi Resevoir Dam


This is a monument commemorating the completion of the earthquake safety construction on the dam in fall of 2002.

The writing is done by Shintaro Ishihara, the governor of Tokyo. I think it says something like 'the taste of winds every 5 days & rain every 10 days,' meaning stable weather brings peace to the world.

Does it?

If you include stability of the weather of people's souls, then yes.

I like the simplicity of the monument. And the sentiments of the verse. Beautiful view of the reservoir too.
