Kyoto Government workers removing bicycles from the area (see the picture above)in which about 500 bicycle commuters were parking until September 2004 when it was barricaded off with scaffolding with any bicycles that remained being impounded.
This was the second major attack on an area established informally by cyclists who need to park near the Demachi-Yanagi transport hub.
The cat and mouse game continues with cyclists leaving their bikes in yet another illegal area further up the river.

No changes in the Kyoto City Government's Anti-Bicycle policy evident.
I went down to Kyoto station a few days ago to buy some bread and parked my bike at the front of the station where all the other shoppers bikes are parked . Came back 5 minutes later and about 30 bikes had disappeared with a security guard standing where they'd been. Amazingly mine would have been the next to have gone.
