Now I understand why the dentist has always been so happy to see me – it’s only in week 6 of treatment (after they’ve hollowed out/ ground down your tooth) that you’re given the tooth crown menu, which ranges from £600 to £1,100!
Surely a bit of pollyfilla would do the trick?!
This is the proof-of-concept prototype.
The Kanda River runs for 24km through the heart of Tokyo, passing by the north of our house.
For this morning’s early-morning walk we headed east along its banks towards Ochanomizu, where one of these photos was taken.
It’s amazing how much green there Is along this corridor – and how much wildlife it supports.
As well as birds and insects, it also supports a variety of jetskier – I saw two traversing along its course.
Along the way we also found a beautiful rose garden. Made me think of England!
Since we moved here a few weeks back I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how interesting /nice this area of Tokyo is. Until now it’s been a blank space in my mental map of the metropolis.
We’re heading back home now – ice creams in hand, then I’ll be off to the Ekiden Carnival to support my friends running in the bi-annual relay race.
