Kamo River Banks Near Matsubara Bridge
These days, the banks of the Kamo River are reinforced. In the last few decades, especially, thanks to the effort of the city and the people, it has improved significantly and the water has become clearer as well. When we were kids in 1970s, trains to and from Osaka ran just by the east-side river banks between Sanjo and Shichijo. They now run underground enabling a nice promenade to have been constructed, where people, young and old, enjoy themselves.
