Legend of angel’s robe.Trying to shoot the great legend of Japan.

A certain Japanese national “robe-of-feathers-type myth of the celestial maiden.” The beautiful angel who goes down by the power of the robe of an angel from the sky, and bathes in a pond and a lake. The man who steeled a glance at the figure covers robe of the angel and prevents you from returning to the sky. And a story that the man marries a beautiful angel and makes a child. The place of the opening that the ending changed by an area, but the anecdote was born as “Yogo Lake.”



August daybreak, morning 5:00 Yogo Lake

Summer morning, Lake Yogo at 5. Already brighter skies and pale pink morning sun shines from the ridge of the mountain.

It takes approximately half an hour (almost the same train) by car from Kyoto. “Eight scenes of Lake Biwa-snow Shizugatake Taikan” as separating high and low peak residents have familiarized Yogo Lake and Lake Biwa. This lake surrounded by mountains on three sides, isolated from the world as very quiet. Forget the time a bird flying over the Lake and beautiful enough the pestle. On a windless day Lake is very peaceful and the mirror in subtly reflects the surrounding mountains that is known as “Mirror Lake”.

Here was written over 1200 years ago “OMI province topography” in history is oldest in the Rove legend provides a “robe of an Angel” anecdotes and remain as a book of Angel. Said came at the beginning of the Rove legend of other angels in. It’s a beauty come and bathe Angel certainly is understandable.

Off the beaten path from morning until the evening, aim for great photos in the dawn you can shoot pictures known as “Salar de Uyuni Japan” before the deep blue and the sky is projected onto the Lake, birds flying, sunset.

Recommended for cycling, walking, fishing

The Yogo lake also with much people who enjoy fishing from early morning.

The people of the lake are less than two hours in approximately 6km and the one which goes around it on foot small. I might say, and there were the person who enjoyed fishing from an early morning and the person who did cycling in the summer. Because I can rent a bicycle at Yogo Station nearby, the forthcoming person use it by a train. Because the fresh-water smelt fishing is possible in the end of November, a large number of people go to visit it every year. In the outdoor of this autumn, I think the Lake Yogo to be fun.
