Travel Photo: Hajiusui (恥うすい坂) the Stone of Shame in Nago
This stone is a monument to a story Shakespeare could have written.
Two young lovers, ended their lives in this area.
It's another one of those tales about a girl who is in love.
And, she catches her guy, with another woman.
So, she goes up the trail and kills herself.
He went up and did the same thing.
They probably would have gotten this rock carving, anyhow.
So, I'm wondering. What possessed them to take their clothes off ?
The inscription on the stone warns travelers. Be careful, going up that trail.
Something told me, "Don't go in there."
So, I stayed on the road and shot butterflies, instead.
If you go up that trail, you better sprinkle the path with leaves.
Because, if you don't, you will be misled by some evil spirits !
