Local Run

I caught a cold after coming back from my trip to North America, so couldn't run for about 10 days. I am finally over it and resumed running. Here, I am posting some scenes from my run in my neighborhood.

These three pictures are of the Ghibli Museum. It is so popular that you need to purchase time & date specified tickets before hand. The second picture shows the ticket office. Totoro sits there. At the top of the roof stands the robot soldier from Castle in the Sky.






This is a 1947 photo of a bridge that spans over the train tracks of Chuo Line. The man photographed walking down the steps is Osamu Dazai, a famous author that used to live in Mitaka.



This is what the bridge looks like now. It does not look all that different, except for there are many buildings around it.



This is the view from the bridge.

If we ever come out to Tokyo we will have to make time for this museum--it looks great. Here is a link to the Robot Soldier

The head of the robot soldier is seen in roof in the photo of the building I posted.
