The other day I was cycling along a street parallel to the Miho Beach in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, when I espied this unusual water tank!
It stood practically in the middle of a small farm!
Interesting way to advertise Shimizu Ku.
Actually the area is quite remarkable for quite a few similar sights!
I knew that Shimizu was noted for its strawberries and oranges, but I didn’t know about roses!
Cucumbers and the local JA?Japan Agriculture Office, which is probably advertising itself!
Tomatoes and edamame!
The very farm it stood by grew edamame!
The well-maintained stairway is proof enough that it is still used for ts original purpose!

Very cute, and in a 60s super-graphics sort of way. Nice work, Shimizu!
We agree, don’t we! Incidentally I discoevered a superb non-smoking cafe patisserie!
