Artisteer - Web Design Generator

Web Design Generator - Artisteer (Mac & PC) is a fun, low priced tool I used to make this and other custom WordPress based websites, including the new Savage Japan Podcast site and redesigned Savage Japan Movie Reviews site. Artisteer can also be used for general website layout, Blogger and other platforms. No programming skills required. I enjoyed using this product so much, I sought out one of their ad links to place here.

Photo #37 – Whitewater Riverboat Crane in Arashiyama

Whitewater boat crane in Arashiyama district of Kyoto Japan.This photo corresponds with Episode 4 of the Savage Japan Podcast. Episode 4 can be heard here at SavageJapan.com or here at SavageSnowPodcast.com.

These boats didn’t look like whitewater boats to me when I first saw them and it took a little thinking for me to figure out what was going on here.

The boats are being removed from the water and stacked so they can be trucked back to Kameoka. The crane is a critical link in the loop for efficiently lifting and stacking the boats in preparation for their return trip upstream.

The boats are routed to this crane through a small channel that skirts the south end of the Togetsukyo Bridge. The water is diverted just above the dam seen in the seine fishing photo.
