Tsukiji to Harumi

Feeling full and happy we walked towards Harumi.  All of the land here is reclaimed.  I expected it to be more warehouse-like. I have been through this area before, mostly on a motor bike or going out to eat monja  (more on that later), but I was surprised to see so much gentrification - many upmarket highrise among the industrial areas.  It's walking distance to Ginza, which makes it easily gentrifiable.
Crossing from Tsukiji area - the silver moon on the aparment
building had me thinking it was a love hotel, but actually just an
enthusiastic architect.
Dredging I think, on the Sumidagawa (river)
A little house on a canal next to the Sumida gawa.

Let's make a town (suburb) with no terrorists.
Can't disagree with that, though I wonder how effective it would
be in deterring committed terrorists....

It seems like a seriously DINK area.  Very double good income. 
This is a gym
A car park with more than usual foliage
A very hazy look at the Rainbow Bridge from Harumi

A MAFF (ministry of ag. forestry & fishing ship) docked at Harumi.
Off limits to the public it probably spends its time chasing the
Sea Shephard when not in port.

It seems like whaling ships dock here
