  • The Dragonflies.

  • Let's see if we get some close ups of the Dragonflies.

  • Sometimes they land on top of you, like on me on your finger.

  • You get close these Air city Dragonflies, though they're not quite as quite as friendly as the ones in the countryside.

  • It's beautiful toe.

  • Look back over the flowers and a lot of photographers come after weddings.

  • They come here to take pictures because it's just such a beautiful little site.

  • I say little this the massive park, but the buildings around it kind of also detract a little bit from it.

  • I don't know.

  • The park is pretty empty, and I wanted to show a little bit of support.

  • This isn't very far away from my house, so It's not a very tough ride to get here in the heat got up to about 30 38 degrees Celsius here in Tokyo, which is over 100 F.

  • A lot of bees here.

  • So another reason why can I was not exactly excited to become into harmonic.

  • You park it this time.

  • Beautiful, though fish is the Let's.

  • See if this if the signal got a little bit better, it could be because we're surrounded by these buildings here.

  • And I think Tokyo Tower is is the closest, uh, space that's giving us the signal.

  • So I think as we get deeper into the park, the signal's gonna get a little bit better.

  • I should have I should have gone around to the other side, pull my finger times.

  • If you do that, they'll come and land on your finger.

  • A lot of photographers will be coming here to a mile.

  • Yours here.

  • Well, what a difference a day can make.

  • And it's such a beautiful photo.

  • Can I and I got married Not too far away from here, uh, at another kind of garden.

  • It's a little bit smaller, but you can't get married in here.
