Sunday ride

Today was another beautiful autumn day. Sunshine. Blue sky. A bit chilly. We got on our bikes and rode along the river that runs by close-ish by our house.

This was taken close to the start. The skycrapers you can see in the back are from Shinjuku.

They were either already finished for the day or taking a break or not working because it was a Sunday. The skinned kakis were strung on a cord and hanged to dry in the air. The kakis you see in the front are still fresh, the darker ones in the back have already dried, darkened and shrivelled. I’m not sure if they do that for decoration or to eat them later on during winter. Generally, there are many kaki trees in Tokyo and also citrus fruit trees.
