Fifty-five volunteers (a new record turnout) collected 134 bags of trash today at the Arakawa River clean up event at Nishi Kasai today. The Global Indian International School in Tokyo joined about 15 TRF participants with 40 people (about 5 teachers and 35 students). With so much people power, we were able to achieve a power event. The kids really made a great effort and stayed for the entire event. People were dumping baskets of trash at the collection piles faster than we could bag it. There were so many bags, we had to stack them 7 deep in the final photos rather than the normal 5 because we ran out of space on the section where we cut the grass. Special thanks to Onihira-san for cutting grass during the event.

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.
