Five volunteers turned out for Sunday’s Arakawa River clean up event and collected 24 bags of trash. With the hotspots gone it was collection of lots of small pieces with a few larger pieces along the pods to take out once that grass had been cut. It was crazy weather. First it was a bright sun (no clouds and hot) and then a freak rain storm came and went pushing us out to shelter under the highway. Three members left early, so our 13th attempt at this spot wasn’t exactly a charm or maybe unlucky 13. Nevertheless, it was a great effort by everyone and an additional 24 bags of trash are gone from this area. With that we will take a two-week break on the Arakawa and be back at this spot on Aug. 26. The photos are a mix from my camera and from Kiyoko and Pradi.

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.
