Sixteen volunteers turned out for today’s Arakawa River clean up event at Nishi Kasai and collected 18 bags of trash. Ten participants were from the Indian International School in Tokyo. This was planned to be a removal of some residual trash after multiple clean ups of this area, so a lower bag count was expected, But the rain made it even more difficult. Then a lot of the trash collected was smaller fragments, but again lots of fry pans. Braving the rain, it really was a great effort by the participants. There is still a bit more to do so we are going to hit this area one more time next Sunday as well as working on the other side of the Tozai Line bridge if we have enough people.
