|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 2:30pm on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely

Relaxing riverside: 18:00-18:30
Return to station.


Gather at FUNABORI Station (Shinjuku Line) outside the only ticket gate at 14:30, and then go to the Arakawa River and pick up trash along the banks for about 3 to 3.5 hours.


If you are not able to make the scheduled time, check for the location and you could do cleaning at your own schedule with the bags left for us to pick up. Just use clear bags and be sure to sort by burnable, glass, cans, pet bottles, nonburnable and batteries, etc. in small open containers. I am often (but not always out at the river in the late morning doing some scouting and precleaning, so contact me directly if you come early.)


If you come late, it will be about a 25-min walk to our location the river which may vary month by month. Call my cell phone 090-1847-5075 if there are any problems finding us.


In the event of light or medium rain this event will NOT be cancelled. Please bring rain gear and we will take shelter (under a bridge) until any downpours let up. In the event of heavy rain/strong winds (e.g., typhoon conditions) or lightning then the event will be cancelled (and usually moved to a different day).

Let’s have fun enjoying our local nature while making it better at the same time.
