In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Three Coins in the Fountain.”
Have you ever tossed a coin or two into a fountain and made a wish? Did it come true?
Not a fountain, but rather off into a pond. I was in Fuji Five Lake Kawaguchiko area specifically in Oshino Hakkai where I visited the eight ponds that it is famous for. In one of the lakes, that which fronts all of the other ponds if coming from the usual entrance, there is a pond nearby a fish restaurant where I saw coins submerged, sitting silently at the bottom. Gold, silver, bronze coins – with this scene, it is but evident that it is a wishing pond. So I made my one wish. One that I have been wishing for for the past three years. I am still waiting, as much as I wanted to answer this daily prompt’s question of “did it come true?”. Path could be less hazy now, so I am positive I am getting there.
Above is the small pond in Oshino Hakkai. You may find details of my trip there in this post. 🙂
