Fourteen volunteers collected 118 bags of trash at today’s Arakawa River clean up at Nishi Kasai. It was our second “power event” (exceeding 100 bags) in a row. People were coming and going all day but we ended up with a large group who were dedicated to removing a large amount of trash that was uncovered after cutting the grass. It was a nice mix of 9 regulars and 5 newcomers, and people came from many different countries, 5 Japanese, 2 Americans, 2 Germans, 2 Sri Lankans, 1 Columbian, 1 Frenchwoman, and 1 Malaysian. The weather was beautiful, and everyone made a great effort. Thank you all!

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.
