Photography: Waterwheel by Risachantag Photography: Waterwheel by Risachantag
The waterwheel at the Kyoto Eiga Mura. These were used for processing rice and making sake back in feudal Japan. I love the weathered wood textures, you still see a lot of lovely old Japanese houses with this sort of feel in rural areas even today.

Fascinating, in this picture it sort of looks like the wood used to make the wheel and what holds it is made from an either different or better repaired wood from the chute that feeds the water into it. I'm not sure if that's just a difference in lighting or something, but it sure is interesting :D

Heh, saw this referenced in Okami and it didn't seem like just any ordinary Japan, but Feudal Japan or something. XD

The water wheel and Sake thing is really important. XD

But now I'm seeing it up close! <3 It looks big and somewhat simple yet hard to make! :O

Like the design is simple enough, but it's really big and must have needed a lot of materials. XD

It's really cool and you took it at really good angle. Have you thought of turning it black and white? I bet it would look stunning.
