Another big result on the Arakawa today with 18 volunteers collecting 76 bags of trash. Almost half the participants seemed to have been first timers. The weather was great although there was a bit of light rain. A lot of the trash was residual stuff from areas previously cleaned, so it took time to fill a bag. Next week we’ll be cutting some grass in this area to open up some fresh veins of gomi.

There will be no Edogawa (Myoden) event on Saturday (Apr. 16), but rather this event has been moved to Arakawa (Funabori) on Sunday (Apr. 17). It will be the same time 13:00 station ticket gate meetup and 13:30 riverside meetup, but on Sunday at Funabori near the dirty angle.. At present we are having some technical difficulties updating the individual event pages.
