I guess it all depends on your point of view. The sun is baking the small boat rental, and fishing boats that line part of the river on the Kasai, or Urayasu side of the Kyoedogawa River. It is a little piece of the local culture that I love to investigate. Old signs that are faded to perfection. The algae green water that flows out to Tokyo Bay, along with that ocean smell that wafts over the neighborhood.
