bike ride to Todoroki

bike ride to Todoroki

We took a bike ride today to  Todoroki, which is very much part of Tokyo. But there is a small park where the ground drops away to reveal a small canyon, and there is a small river and waterfall. Water seeps out of the canyon wall behind these statues. There is a heavy canopy of leaves and it is really cool by the water.

Also, there are lots of mosquitoes.

It was a nice ride on the bikes we got a month ago. about 15km round trip, with plenty of breaks to check the map and reorient ourselves. I constantly am lost, since the roads are not straight at all, and one wrong turn can put you going in the wrong direction pretty fast.

The weather cooperated too, a little over cast but not too hot. Glad to have a nice day before the rainy season begins in earnest.
