Enjoying the Cool of Evening on the Riverbed at Shijo - Terrific scene of people enjoying the cool evening breezes along the riverbed at Shijo in Kyoto. At left, a group relaxes on a platform extending over the water, smoking and eating as the man at far left amuses them by gesturing and waving a fan. The island in the center of the riverbed is filled with other people having a night out, the far shore lined with teahouses decorated with red paper lanterns. Low clouds hang over the city, with mountains in soft gray silhouette under the darkening sky. A wonderful view of this favorite summer activity.
