10 seconds along the Nakagawa at 5:30 pm

I’m still not feeling well, and don’t have my strength back, but I decided I really need to move my body! I can’t let myself get weak by not moving. So when it got a bit cooler I took a bottle of water and forced myself to cycle over to the Nakagawa, just a kilometer away. I didn’t do a full course along the river. Instead I parked my bike by one of the decks and went down by the river and sat for a while. Here’s a 10 second, very quiet video of the river going slowly past. It was peaceful. I stayed until the Katsushika Ward office speakers came on with music telling kids it was time to go home.





Strange “festival” by my station

It’s not often I’m completely stumped after all these years, but I have absolutely no idea what this “Shinkoiwa eki hiro festival” is going on by my station right now. A couple of photos followed by a very short video.

I looked for a minute and then just shook my head and headed for my bus.
