Country of Rivers

Saitama Prefecture with around 7 million people (almost as big as Sweden!) is starting a campaign this weekend July 13-15 to raise awareness about its many rivers. "Saitama: Country of Rivers" will collect photos and essays from the public about the 100 most charming river spots around Saitama. Do send in your suggestions.

Is it me, or is the poster boy of their campaign a canal?

He he, thanks for the comment Dan. Is it just me or does Japanese not have a word for "canal" so it is all rivers to them.
