Kyoto After Typhoon

  Sep 16th, 2013

The recent typhoon that is passing over Japan caused the Kamogawa River in Kyoto to overflow slightly during the night. I took these photos in the morning after. The river is still flowing fast and is over its banks but it doesn’t look to be getting any higher now and the rain has stopped. It certainly looks quite different to the normal peaceful river flow.
