Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in the dry riverbed in Kōnodai, Ichikawa-shi, Chiba prefecture. When I was walking along the dry riverbed in Edo River, I found that bank construction was performed broadly. It seems to be extension construction of the bank for pouring the running water of a river safely when the water of a river increases in number by a typhoon etc. The bicycle and pedestrian reserved road along a river had become one-way traffic. And, in the riverside, the crane truck was placed and the workers were performing mining of soil/sand and conveyance of iron material. It is a public works which a river office and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism(MLIT) lead. I looked at the same spectacle of bank construction even in the Arakawa dry riverbed in Kawaguchi-shi, Saitama prefecture recently. These are the public works after the Great East Japan Earthquake which occurred in March, 2011. Probably, such construction is also a remote cause which the influence of the tsunami damage of an earthquake disaster promotes. Although a large amount of tax was injected and precautions are taken, I think that citizen are also convincing and welcoming such a kind of public works. Public works may sometimes have priority from a civilian enterprise over a world. The right bank of a river is Tokyo, and we can see that the train of Keisei Electric Railway crosses an iron bridge in the distance.
