Feb 22 2021 11 CommentsTokyo serenity on a Sunday morning There’s a lot to like about Tokyo, but as far as descriptions of the city go, laid back generally isn’t one of them. And yet that said, Sunday mornings surely don’t get much more serene than this.
This seems such a unique way of experiencing Tokyo I’d love to try this.
It really must. They picked the perfect day for it too, so it must have been a thoroughly enjoyable outing.
Beautiful scene. One of our favourite walks is along the Sumida River along the far bank up to Asakusa. Thank you for brightening up this incredibly drizzley and dank Monday morning.
It really was. Seeing them slowly making their way along the river was lovely. I don’t do that many river walks, but after seeing this it might be an idea to do more.
You are very welcome. Been unusually warm here the last few days. A positively balmy 23 today. But then back to single digits by the end of the week…
There you go again… showing a different side to Tokyo than the tourism/outsider stereotypes would have it! 🙂
Thank you! Living here makes it that much easier of course. Plenty of time, and thus the opportunities, to see different things. That said, first time for me to see this. Made an already nice day even brighter!
Who would have thought?!? How great, thanks!
I know eh? That was my reaction too. Really nice to see, and a complete surprise. Plus it was made even better by seeing them again after we’d taken very different routes to the same bridge.

I wonder what they do when the tourist boats go past producing a wake!
That’s a good point. Wouldn’t be quite so serene then!
A good time for them now I suppose as there are less boats, but there’s actually one visible in the distance, although I’m not sure which way it was headed.
Oh mine. What wonderful pictures!!!!!
