A walk along the river

One thing about being close to the beautiful Tamagawa, is that one can find a lot of ways to enjoy the unique (of course it's unique, this is Japan where everything is, isn't it?) outdoors of Japan there. Today I took a little hike around the area. After watching a guy kick his purebred collie twice in the ribs for peeing on a weed (politeness? Bushido?), I went down to where the homeless stay--there are many along that river. They don't bother people and have their own community there.

I went past their tents and down along the river---plenty of gnats and fleas close to the water. I suppose it is about the closest thing to a natural area near the city. The litter is not from the homeless. It's from well-off residents...
