Early spring, 2019, around Harumi aimlessly

[early summer rain George] January 11, 2019 18:00

As custom of these past several years, we walk Kachidoki, the Harumi neighborhood using day of New Year holidays. This neighborhood is like construction rush for the Tokyo Olympics of the next year. Therefore it became slightly restless scene this year. There were many places under construction, and Harumi Terminal Park was Closed to the Public, too.


At first in indoor graveyard to Toyoin Temple with gravestone of Jippensha-Ikku. There are 19 monuments which Musei Tokugawa wrote if for explanation at entrance.

Chimney of garbage and sewage plant to back to Harumi Wharf.
We are building many big buildings whether it is apartment. Therefore Harumi Wharf which a lot of roads during traffic regulation were able to expect from far away several years ago is not readily seen. If think that finally arrived at passenger vessel terminal, the next Harumi Terminal Park is Closed to the Public this time!
