Today, I participated in "the Bottom of the Pond Tour" of the dried Inokashira Pond.
The start of the tour - it was very well attended.
We were allowed to go down to the pond.
The bridge by the water well.
These used to be where the pumps were situated to move then abundant water.
We really walked a lot in the mud.
The view of Nanai Bridge from the tour.
Frog eggs were found.
Animal and bird walk prints.
Looking northwest side of the pond.
Plant roots hanging from the rocks.
Items thrown into the pond.
The pond will be filled again by the middle of next month to be ready for cherry blossoms.
