I captured this peaceful moment on a rainy day in Utsunomiya, when I crossed the Tagawa River in the centre of the city. I enjoyed the gyoza (dumplings) capital of Japan during my many visits, but I never saw the streets and neighbourhoods so empty. If you have the chance come here by train from Tokyo. It is just a 50min ride with the JR Tohoku Shinkansen from the Tokyo Ueno Station. The best gyoza restaurants waiting for you. Itadakimasu:)
