* ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' - Taiga lays on the riverbank exhausted after wheeling a bike around, because she can't ride a bike. A chance encounter with her LoveInterest motivates her to get up and try to ride the bike. In the novels Ryuuji and Ami go there as part of a community service project to collect trash, but the scene is heavily truncated in the anime.

Many Japanese cities, as seen in {{Anime}} and {{Manga}}, will feature a river with a gently sloped artificial riverbank featuring a sidewalk or trail either at the top or bottom (or both) and stairs to descend to the water's edge. There's likely a nearby bridge, too. Suitable for LyingOnAHillside, SceneryPorn, WatchingTheSunset, and ThatCloudLooksLike. This is TruthInTelevision, as the Liberal-Democratic Party - which has virtually monopolized the government for several decades [[note]] Except for a very brief stint of minority status in 1993, more about that on UsefulNotes/JapanesePoliticalSystem [[/note]] - realized back in the '60s that investing huge sums in semi-useful infrastructure and beautification projects kept people employed, happy, and voting for them. Thus, many if not most rivers that pass through urban areas have received this treatment. However, only the largest tend to be picturesque, with most being small creeks enveloped by steep concrete. These also happen to serve a practical purpose in allowing for controlled overflow during the typhoon season.
