I just saw that on the news, with banners unfurled to mark the start of the big countdown to the Tokyo Olympics.
Also, recently in the news, Boston was chosen as the U.S. candidate city for the 2024 Olympics. Their major competitor is Rome. I personally can’t imagine the Olympics being held in Boston. I mean – where would they put it? And can you imagine the congestion and traffic? Even on a good day Boston is almost impossible to drive around. But apparently everybody in Boston is excited about it.
Anyway, the countdown begins. Mark your calendars.
Around 4 pm I decided to rouse myself from my desk chair stupor and go for a walk down to the Nakagawa. The weather was clear blue skies, and the fall colors were vivid. And I think I got a good pre-sunset photo of the sun low in the sky with good river highlights.
To the left of the large sun you can see the Sky Tree.
Sunset was at 4:50 pm today.
My bus stop today at 4 pm. The shadows are already getting long because sunset was at 4:53 pm today.
I decided to be lazy and take the bus to the station, and recorded this time lapse video while waiting.
In front of Maruetsu supermarket earlier today, in the rain.
