One piece from the place which went to the back slightly along the river from Maru Suzu Bridge and communal baths in the Kurokawa Onsen area. The warm light of the inn, the light of the light lantern, and the reflected light reflected on the surface of the water make it a warm feeling that you can not say anything.
