The highway... that was left behind
There was the village in the close bottom of the gorge.
Though still noon, only here is already dusk.
100 years ago, this post town was full of travelers.
Most of the passersby do not walk this way.
There are only the inns calmly.
While waiting for a visitor without an expectation...
A small light seems to be turned on.
Time has passed. Most people will forget all.
Memory may return to here again someday, by chance.
The embers of an old prosperity.
Here is Tsumago, Nagano Prefecture.
