A Pleasant Day Along the Kamo River

Today was a sunny, gorgeous day in Kyoto, with temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Totally pleasant. Conveniently, I had an hour to kill while Anthony was at “Jumping” (gymnastics), so I wandered around with my camera near the Kamo river, where the Takano river joins it at Kawabata and Imadegawa Streets.

Navigating the Kamo-River Rapids The water is normally about an inch lower, leaving stepping stones that are dry and easy to navigate. Trying to cross today, on the other hand, results in wet shoes. -- Kyoto, Japan -- Copyright 2008 Jeffrey Eric Francis Friedl, http://regex.info/blog/

Neat post. The yellow plants look like mustard and soon we’ll be seeing fields of it here in Ohio.

I don’t often comment but wanted to let you know how much I enjoy these regular posts that, bit by bit, build a very informative, intelligent and interesting picture of life in and around Kyoto. My wife and I visited your city back in 2000 and loved it; the considered integrity of your photography and writing convey your environment, as you see it, very well. I first found your site while on some technical search related to Nikkor lenses or Lightroom queries (I forget which) but I now read to travel vicariously. 🙂 Thanks, and please continue.
