The Tama River near Futako Tamagawa

This separates Tokyo prefecture from Kanagawa Prefecture. Housing costs about 30% more on the Tokyo side than just a few hundred meters away on the Kanagawa side. This is just a small stream on the Tokyo side of the Tamagawa. The river is dirty and polluted, but fish still live in it, so it is not as polluted as it once was. It stinks after a flood though.

Down river there is constantly construction going on as they move the river bed to one side, then another, and build parks, build up then tear down parts of the river bank. Gotta keep the construction industry going. A splendid use of tax money.
