They are pictures of Yagirinowatashi. Yagiri in Matsudo City, Chiba Prefecture, is connected with Shibamata Taishakuten, Katsushika Ward, Tokyo Prefecture by waterway transportation of ‘watashibune (ferry),’ that is, an old Japanese boat, which is famous as ‘Yagiri No Watashi’ (ferry that has been taking passengers across the Edo-gawa River for nearly 400 years). Now it is used by the tourists, because the bridge was structured near here. It became famous because the Enka song “Yagirinowatashi” was very populared in 1980’s. Takashi Hosokawa sang this song and got the 25th Japan Record Awards in 1983.
