|An old bicycle lay at the bottom of a river bed in Funabashi, Chiba Japan.|
Not only are bicycles disposed of this way but TVs, fans, mopeds, furniture and other such large or electronic devices are often seen thrown away illegally.

When I look at a bicycle or other junk sitting in the middle of Japan's enchanting landscape, I find it interesting. It almost looks archaeological to me. As nature slowly wraps itself around and quietly disrepairs the once shiny metal, I am reminded of Japan's serene beauty which seems to overpower and remind humanity of its place.
After all from dust we came and to dust we will return said the LORD.
