Eighteen volunteers turned out for today’s Arakawa River clean up at Nishi Kasai and collected 16 bags of trash. Once again we got hit with bad weather and only 3 regulars together with 15 people from the Indian International School in Tokyo. Most people did not have the proper footwear to go down the main target area, but progress was made in collecting a lot of the smaller pieces of plastics and trash on the embankment wall. Then, we had to quit early due to being wet and cold.

Tokyo River Friends was founded in early 2017 by members of Jambo International in order to focus on regular monthly clean ups of Tokyo area rivers, which was an expansion of several clean up events per year that Jambo had been doing for two decades as part of its broader environmental activities.
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.
