The Kamo River

September 28, 2018

The past few days, it's been pretty rainy and a little chilly.  This afternoon, the weather was gorgeous!  So naturally I needed to take a little detour on the way home from class.  


About two bus stops away from campus, there is a fork in the Kamogawa (Kamo River).  Along the banks of the river there is a park.  I ride the bus going on one of the several bridges running over the park and river each day, and I look out the window at all the people enjoying nature - wondering when I'd be one of them.  Well, today was the day!  Take a look:



There are large stepping stones visitors use to cross.  Some of them are shaped like turtles and stingrays.  I found myself sitting on one of these friendly stone creatures as I watched the water run past.



I told one of my professors that I planned on coming here today.  He told me how he's seen a few tanuki (raccoon dogs) by the river.  I'm jealous!  I wish I had seen one!  But, at least I did see this little friend.  My Japanese friend living back in the states tells me it is a sagi.  Isn't she beautiful?
