This boat is moored at the head of the Takase River near the Okura Hotel in Kyoto. This canal was dug in 1611 and used to transport goods to various places in Kyoto.
This particular old boat is loaded with sake. The water is fresh and clear and flowing in this canal, with pretty autumn leaves in the water and on the walkways.
I sat on a damp concrete step(lower left) on a cold and damp afternoon and tried this scene.
