瞞着川

Damashi-gawa

The name “Damashi-gawa” given to this river by Shikou Munakata who came after hearing about the river’s Kappa (turtle demon) legend. He made a series of artistic engravings called the Damashi-gawa Hangamaki and 13 of these have been made into panels that are posted along the river walkway. You can also see dragonflies here in June.
