Nogawa Park (December 6th)
We followed the Nogawa river on the way back from Tonogayato Gardens.
On the way from Tonogayato Gardens, we rode the bikes by the Nogawa river and stopped by the Nogawa Park. There were lots of nice maple trees and also lots of flocks of old people guided by quite a few volunteer people... If it is fine if there is only a few groups they make...but there were 5 or 6 groups of 10 or so people each! Anyway, we enjoyed beautiful colors of the maple trees all day today.
We found another violet blooming already!
Viola japonica (Ko-sumire).
