Hokuriku Runs and Walks

My last business trip of the year 2012 took me to Hokuriku.  I took an airplane from Tokyo's Haneda Airport to Komatsu Airport, then used a car to travel within the region.

The beautiful view of the mountains covered with snow - seen from an expressway parking area.

Yesterday morning, I could take a run in Kanazawa.  Snow was pretty much melted there.

The lobby of the hotel I stayed - very nice.

I was also in Takaoka, a city that is in between Kanazawa and Toyama.

This is the Great Buddha Statue - considered one of the three in Japan (other two are those of Nara and Kamakura).

This morning, I ran in Nanto - my final stop of the trip.

The moon was setting as I ran.

Rice fields are all over the place.

I had a bit of a run in snow.
