As I worte in my last entry, we are celebrating Tanabata (Star Festival) today. At the same time today is ‘Cool Earth Day’ in Japan, an initiative by the government to switch off unnecessary lights and to think about environmental issues such as global warming. Some of the buildings, towers and signboards will be turning off the lights to save energy. This is a campaign which started last year when the Toyako G8 Summit was held in Hokkaido Japan.
This is a picture of the Tokyo Tower and Zojoji Temple before the tower light was turned off.
This summer, we are planning a ‘Summer Special Ride’ besides our regular weekend tours. With the Summer Morning Ride we will ride through Tsukiji and central Tokyo very early in the morning and in the Summer Evening Ride, we will be riding the water front area and along the canals.
