"Two brothers, Shoemon and Seiemon, were hired to design the dam and the Tamagawas Josui system to serve the south and the western parts of Edo. Irrigation canals criss-crossed the plain and agriculture thrived. Rice, buckwheat and barley fed Edo's growing population."

The River Society Overview: River civilizations had to deal with many problems of which many were related to agriculture. A big problem that river civilizations had was their dependence on agriculture for food and their livelihood. Intense physical labor was needed for this kind of civilization. Bad weather certainly affected their lives.
The Place Overview: In this paragraph we are
going to describe the Place characteristics of types of soils, of plants,
animals, and the climate of Fuchu. It is connected to a Place in a
physical way. We walked on cement
and saw sand at the river. An uncle touched the dirt and a dad stepped on
pebbles. We saw seashells on the ground. We crushed a wood chip. A mum sat on a
tile, a dad threw the rocks and we brushed the red brick. Our group saw in the
musuem a pig-buta. We saw lots of cherry blossoms-sakura, fish- sakuna
and some pigeons-hato. I saw a fossil of ominight and coral. We saw
weeds-tanbo and sensitive plants when we walked on the river. In Fuchu,
it barely rains. Itís sunny almost all the time. It is sometimes cloudy.
It gets hot easily but it only snows in winter.
Itís cold only in the morning
