Shinnakagawa River | The Beautiful River in the Urban Area

Shinnakagawa is a branch river of Nakagawa flowing from Tonegawa in Hanyu in Saitama prefecture to Tokyo Bay. The river begins from Nakagawa at Takasago in Katsushikaku and it flows to south in the central part of Edogawaku between Arakawa and Edogawa river and goes into Edogawa River in the south of Mizuhobashi Bridge and finally it goes to the bay. Since the areas along Nakagawa River suffered floods frequently, to avoid this disaster, Shinnakagawa was built to bring water of Nagagawa to Edogawa River. So it was a canal completed in March 1963 and it became a river in March 1965 and it was named Shinnakagawa.
Anyway, Kafu Nagai who was a famous writer early 1900's and walked on Ichikawashi and Edogawaku for many years did not write any information of Shinnakagawa River in his diary Danchotei Nichijo. (He visited Nimaibashi on the east side of Koiwa Ohashi bridge in May 31st 1948.)
Now many people enjoy walking and jogging on the promenades on the banks and basins of Shinnakagawa River. Though Shinnakagawa flows in the residential areas in Tokyo, people enjoy seeing nature along it. Why don't you visit it?
