Cold but beautiful winter morning in Tokyo

お濠に氷 バイクと お濠に氷

Hi there I am Masa.

We had the coldest morning in Tokyo today.

Temperature dropped to -2c.

Please take a look at above photos. Some part of the moat, surrounding the Imperial Palace, were frozen. Can you realize that on the photos?

I shot these photos on the way to our office. I bike to work every morning. It takes about 40 minutes for 11 km from my house to the office.

I also sometimes enjoy kayaking in the downtown Tokyo, in the canals, small rivers or in Tokyo bay.


There are 13 million people living in Tokyo. But it is seldom to see other kayaks on the water, especially in winter.

I like the feeling to row the kayak in the mid of Tokyo.


January to February is the coldest moment In Tokyo.

But we are operating the bike tours.

I will be the guide for the tour on 26th. so hope to see you soon on our bike tour!!
