She was wearing shoes..... then the investigators will likely look for foul play because had she committed suicide, she would have left them by the pond.... uh huh.

I visit Inokashira Koen often. It’s a great 90 minute bicycle ride, and the park with the big, central pond and the lovely old castle ruins (hard to see them though, because it just looks like hills) are very relaxing. Several geocaches there as well. All in all a very nice park.

Slipped hit her head? Seems really weird? Drunk maybe?
