Ok, I’m well and truly on #KamoRiverWatch… it’s getting even worse. Can no longer see any of the footpaths, it’s spilling over into the run off canal, there’s tree trunks washed up and I swear if I leaned over enough at the bridge then I could almost touch the water! #Kyoto pic.twitter.com/qVXQ65TM3o
