Wakayama Visit

Partly to participate in a marathon, I visited Wakayama Prefecture over the weekend.

We had a perfect weather for the run yesterday.  I actually did the Half-Marathon this time - had a great time.   Here - runners waiting for the start of the run.

A road of the area.

Wakayama is famous for plum fruits - already flowers were blooming.

Here are more flowers in the yard of the hotel I stayed.

A view of Tanabe Harbor - the fortress-looking building is actually a super deluxe hotel that was built during Japan's Bubble Economy Period.  BTW, I did not stay there.

Benkei - a popular historical figure was believed to be born in this region.

Saw pigeons sitting on powerlines.
