I found this spot near Mt. Shibi today. I have liked to take long-exposure photos of water flow for a long time. So I am glad I could do so (2.5 sec exposure).

 

See where this picture was taken. [?]

Onigawara are a type of roof ornamentation found in Japanese architecture. They are generally roof tiles or statues depicting a Japanese ogre (oni) or a fearsome beast. Onigawara are most often found on Buddhist temples. The tile's name notwithstanding, the ogre's face may be missing.

A shachihoko or shachi (two ornamental elements on the roof ridge) is an animal in Japanese folklore with the head of a tiger and the body of a carp. It was believed that this animal could cause the rain to fall, and as such, temples and castles were often adorned with roof ornaments (shibi) crafted in the form of a shachihoko, in order to protect them from fire.

In Japanese folklore, a shachihoko (鯱) is an animal with the head of a tiger and the body of a carp. It was believed that this animal could cause the rain to fall, and as such, temples and castles were often adorned with shibi (鴟尾) in this shape, in order to protect them from fire.

 

The above kanji can be pronounced in two different ways. When pronounced "shachihoko", it refers to the mystical animal mentioned above. When pronounced "shachi", it means grampus; a dolphin or orca. This is a source of confusion, even among the Japanese......

Oceanic white tip shark being shadowed by a pilot fish. It was quite a scene - a few hundred shibis (small yellow fin tuna), mahimahi, six sharks and a few ono all in one spot. The sharks had eaten some of the mahimahi and ono that we speared, so I just gave up and jumped in with the camera.
