The Kamogawa (Kamo River)… I have spent a great deal of my life on this river bank either reading or at a social event.

They used to rinse kimonos out in this river long ago and sometimes it used to run blue with indigo…

A ginko tree… some say the nuts are healthy to eat but I am allergic to them. They smell like throw up when cooking so I really don’t understand how some can eat them…
