A Nice Morning Run to Zenpukuji Park

This morning, it was not raining, so I could enjoy a relaxed run to Zenpukuji Park.

The Women's University right by the Park is now 100 years old.

There'll be an election this weekend - for Suginami Ward "Mayor" and a Parliament member position.

Pretty Koi in the pond of the park.

Lotus on the pond.

People were waiting for the bus.

Morning Walk in Marugame Area

Last Saturday, I took a nice walk around my hotel in Marugame.  It was cool and relaxing.

The Port of Fujimi Gyokyo (Fishing Association) - it is a cute little port.

A boat coming back to the port.

Boats in the port - the building on the left is my hotel.  The fenced area in the back is Marugame Boat Race.

Pretty flowers.
