Kamoba ( Duck Hunting Site )



There are two duck hunting site in hama-rikyu gardens.
In Edo era,they watched ducks through that narrow window in photo above.


They led ducks to the narrow water course by using decoy and bait, and caught them with net.

What elaborate installation: the idea that they were able to get ducks without shooting, is fascinating.

That's fascinating. Catching them with nets does not sound easy.

I hope no one uses it now!
