Kaibori (Lake Draining)

Volunteers capturing creatures (participation fee: 30 yen, lol)


Tons of garbage but it was fun to spot them: bikes, umbrellas, cellphones, a shopping cart, a stroller, a chair, empty bottles (didn't see cans), wallets, traffic cones, sandbags, construction materials... I didn't see it but a motorcycle was found too.

Draining Inokashira Lake

They started draining the lake to eradicate invasive species. This is day 3. I wonder how many bikes will be found. Maybe they will find missing parts of dismemberment incident happened in this park 20 years ago - one of the missing parts is "head".
