佐原(さわら) Sawara, an small old town near Tokyo

The town I visited in the month before last has many historical buildings including the one where Mr. Tadataka Inoh, a great figure in Japan,was born. Some of the buildings as well as Mr. Inoh’s have been under restoration because they were badly damaged by Japan's Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011. I took the attached picture in a small boat as the only passenger. I talked with the old lady operator, finding that she married into a family in a boat, which made me feel a nostalgic air.
