The river during this sector is constricted be- Diary and Poetry: The Sedge Hat Diary sixty five tween those boulders; even if the water is sort of deep, the river ¶ows quietly, with none rapids. The bridge going from rock to rock should have been approximately 9 meters lengthy. it really is known as Miyataki-no-shibabashi, the Brushwood Bridge of the Palace’s Waterfall: it was once plaited with brushwood. The bridge rocked as we have been crossing it, and that i couldn't get used to this sense of threat. the following besides there has been someone leaping from the rocks—we requested him, and made him leap. where the place he jumped used to be instantly underneath this bridge. The riverbanks have been rock all over; they gave the impression of status monitors, seven and a part meters above the water.

We paid our respects to this position after crossing a bridge on a mountain circulate that used to be ¶owing in entrance of the shrine.
