Better watch where you're standing or you could be in for a big surprise(or maybe a big thrill)

This makes me wish I was a kid again. Play with water guns and throw water balloons.....

It's probably just an illusion caused by the water, but that one kid's head looks way too big for his body, ha ha! And why is he wearing long pants?!

This is a great photo! Impossible not to smile to their happiness!

These 2 little kids have more common sense than all of these adults pretending to be strong and end up getting heat stroke or heart attack, great to be a kid! No crappy neck ties in this stifling heat! Ii na!!

Ah! To be a kid free from the burdens of work on a hot day! Great shot JT.

Could JT or any readers tell where this place is? I have been desperately looking for such a place since 2 summers without any success and finally believed none existed in Tokyo. Would love enjoying playing there with my kids.

That's a wonderful photo, and like someone else said, would love to see a salaryman prancing about getting soaked.

I reckon kids (or Japanese women for that matter) are infinitely more photogenic that Japanese Salarymen - but that's just me. Cool pic!

JT; I'm sure there is a reason, but Why is the photo gone.
