These are passenger boat for cruise around Tokyo gulf with lunch or dinner. You can have hot TENPURA that is made on the ship. About 10,000 yen per one are necessary to go on board.

I seem to have been used as transportation to a red light district in the Edo era. They do business as a pleasure boat now.

Traffic safety campaign

This week is in effect for traffic safety campaign. There are many tents in this season at every load side. It is set up by neighborhood associations, but nobody is in the tent. I think the event becomes only out of habit. The tent can't watch any safety incidents. Posted by Picasa
