Now you can just link to this post.

"The Spaceship" is an iconic sluice gate on the right bank of the Arakawa in Saitama Prefecture, approx. 33 km from the sea. Its real name is Asaka Suimon (朝霞水門).

It looks like this.



The bike path passes right across it.

The fluorescentlybesocked @Musashi13 can be spotted in the shade of the central pillar, having arrived too early.



Cockless Coxless peletons may be seen in the waters nearby.



Here's a bit of map to help you.



Coordinates are 35.811523N, 139.619005E

This is not to be confused with the Womble Gate. Only @bloaker and his Yokosuka minions know what the fcuk that is.
