Fourteen volunteers collected 41 bags of trash at yesterday’s Arakawa River clean up at Nishi Kasai. We made a fresh cut into the 4th section of pods near the Kasaibashi Bridge. The area wasn’t covered in trash but there a lot of scattered trash, so participants had to work at it, obstructed by high grass, to fill bags. A 40% chance rain turned out to be no rain and a beautiful day. We were also fortunate to have a low tide. In the last photos you can see how the tide came in and covered the work area. A great effort by many people resulted in another large volume of trash removed from the banks of the Arakawa near Tokyo Bay. Minasan otsukaresama!

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.
