Continuing with my exploration of the aesthetic potential in Japan's favorite material,.... more steps!
An Escheresque view of the steps down sanbe Dam.
A very standard form of steps. These go down to the stream that run through Omori, Iwami Ginzan.
Of course concrete can be poured into any shape. These curved steps go down to the boat dock for the horikawa boat tour on the river in Matsue.
These lead down to a hot spring in the river at Tamatsukuri Onsen.
I really liked these that lead up into the Museum of Ehime History & Culture.
These last ones are not actually in Japan, but Seoul, Korea.
