(R16) Tachiaigawa 立会川

The first example in that post was the Tachiaigawa green road 立会川緑道 in Meguro-ku. Here are a few images of the promenade that follows an underground portion of the river:

And an old map of the river, before it was put in an underground culvert:

The visible part of the river only surfaces in the last 10% of the river’s length. It surfaces here: Google maps
