Found some sun-lit boats in Shiba river, under the elevated freeway


Just a few hundred meters down river from an ugly stretch of buried Shiba river, I found these beautiful boats shining beneath the freeway. It’s lovely to see these boats and to know that the river is still being used by some people.

Hand cranked, shaved ice is an old fashioned summer treat


Shaved ice is a popular summer treat. I like this hand-cranked model. The ice is shining like a giant jewel.
