Nippon Seiji (Jujo) paper factory on a rainy day, Yatsushiro, Kumamoto 八代 熊本

Nippon Seiji (Jujo) paper factory on a rainy day, Yatsushiro, Kumamoto 八代 熊本
View toward Ryuho-san from the top of Wada-san's Royal Hotel. The stack smoke is now mainly steam but there is still some paper mill quality to it (ie the smell)..

Pulpwood is shipped into Yatsushiro Port from the US and Russia, trucked to the factory in Matsuki-san's trucks, and turned into rolls of paper using machines from Milwaukee to be shipped out around Kyushu. In the past, all the villages up the Kumagawa were lumber towns, and logs would be floated down the river to the mill.
