On a walk, I caught this soba delivery guy.
Someone actually jumped in front of his bicycle which made him lose his momentum and almost made him fall over.
This actually gave me some time to whip out my camera.
I noticed this tall crane lifting planks of wood off of a truck and wondered why they needed the crane.
I realized that there are many electrical wires in between the truck and construction area, so everything needed to be lifted up and over the wires.
How cute are these two?
The man was leading the lady, making sure she didn't fall.
This tree is called kamisori no ki (razor blade tree or Euonymus alatus).
During the year, this tree is filled with leaves, but come Autumn/Winter, only the branches are left and look exactly like criss-crossing razor blades.
The river water was so calm that the reflection was so clear.
My afternoon walks these days are usually highlighted by warm yet beautiful sunsets.
It is the Year of the Rabbit, I think you'll be seeing a lot of rabbits now and then on this blog.
These were on the wall of a neighborhood pre-school.
Like I said previously, the river was so clear. I think this heron was busy looking at itself.
The tree on the top of the photo is actually a reflection.
I ran into a group of people getting ready to pound some mochi (rice cakes).
This is the usu (mortar) that is used to pound the rice.
Don't know why they were pounding mochi after New Years, but thought it was nice that their group was having lots of fun.
I also noticed that this house got another Hello Kitty for their entrance, wearing a Chinese dress.
What have you been seeing on your walks?
