From Sapporo, where the cherry blossoms were still falling, flew back to Tokyo. Weather forecast said it was rain in the main island, but the weather here was clear and sunny.
In these days, there were many domestic flights.
Next afternoon was lightly sunny, so went out for a long town walk.
Walked along the Jakuzure River Greenway to Shibuya. Jakuzure River originated in the Sakura-Shinmachi area, joined Meguro River at Nakameguro, and flowed into Tokyo Bay at Tennozu area.
Nakameguro Ginza. It had a cheap grocery store and was the only place with a downtown atmosphere. The stores seemed changing from old to new.
Meguro River Greenway. The cherry trees on the river changed to the leaves lush and green. New restaurants, both domestic and foreign, gathered here.
Daikanyama. New facilities were being built one after another. But the sidewalks on the main street were narrow and hard to walk on.
Shibuya River Street leading to Shibuya Stream Building, where Google was located. The street was recently improved and the running water became cleaner. Shibuya River originated in Shinjuku Gyoen Park, ran through Shibuya Valley to Tengenji, changed its name to Furukawa River, passed through Azabu Juban, and flowed into Tokyo Bay at around Hinode Pier.
Back home, had a beer on the rooftop in the early summer evenings.
Made poke at night with Hawaii's poke mix. Went well with rice. A mix of ogo sea weed, spice and salt. Always thought poke went well with chili or habanero, and now found the flavor of poke was Hawaiian salt and chili powder.
Also tried changing the flavor to spicy poke style by adding mayo and harissa.
