Run to Shibuya

On Sunday, I ran from my home to Shibuya. It was sunny and very beautiful autumn day.

At the train depot by Inokashira Line Fujimigaoka Station, an event for retiring of a 3000-series Keio trains was going on.   It must have been a big deal for there were many people.  I am not a train fan, but I found this.

About 2 more km to our final destination, we stopped to walk in Komazawano Park - close from Komaba-Todaimae Station. It was peaceful there.

Old buildings - I think they are waiting to be torn down on Dogenzaka - looking towards Shibuya station.

This is the start of Dogenzaka Street.  The building with a cylindrical shape is Shibuya 109.

We're finally made it to the big intersection by the station.  It was crowded as usual.

Here are the main members of Japan Women's National Football Team advertising deli products at a convenience store in Shibuya.  They are very popular since winning 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup Final this summer.


Naha Run and Walk

This week, I was in Naha, Okinawa for two days.  I could go for a couple of nice morning runs and an afternoon walk.  It was much warmer than Tokyo (but of course, not as warm as Indonesia).

Shintoshin (New City Center) Park was popular with joggers.

A huge Banyan tree at a park an old temple (Sogenji) used to stand until 1945.

Birds were standing around in a tide flat.

Bali Run

Last weekend, I was in Bali, Indonesia.  It was beautiful there.

I ran on the beach on Friday afternoon - the reflection of the skies on the beach was amazing.

Constructions were going on close from the resort area.

Coconuts and Bougainvillea were abundant in the area close from the hotel on Sunday.

A little outdoor shrine by the beach.

Amazing wood carving was displayed in front of a house close from our hotel.
