Wildflowers Along the River

A walk the rivers of Nakagawa and Arakawa has been a regular thing for me and my husband for some years now. Especially during this time when travelling is a challenge. From our house, it is less than 5 minutes to walk to Nakagawa riverside. The two rivers are beside each other separated by an artificial island with a highway road on top.

Depending on the weather and our mood, we would walk until Funabori Station then cross the bridge towards Komatsugawa. From there we walk along Arakawa River on our way back home via the next bridge.

The Wildflowers of Arakawa

On the average this route would take about 1.5 – 2 hours. However, it takes longer for us because of my sudden stops to take photos of the wildflowers along our way.

Wildflowers of different heights, colors, and shapes blend beautifully as if they have been there forever.
