New water break

A few months ago, the city of Kagoshima put up a sign along the Kotsuki river saying that they were going to start some kind of project, but giving no real details. A little later, the construction crew walled off the right half of the river and began putting in a big hole. After about a week, the hole started filling up with a bamboo wickerwork, and I was convinced that they were in the middle of digging a basement for an office building. I wouldn't have been surprised if it was a theme restaurant designed to have the river running under it.

However, I hadn't had any reason to go out to Tecc.Land in a while, and when I finally did, the construction work had been moved to the other side of the river, and the completed project turned out to be a water break.

(Watching for fish.)

(You can just barely make out the top of the wicker work structure downstream of the barrier.)

Start of the second half of the project.

A week later, from the other side of the river.
