Early Morning Run in Fukuoka

Last Tuesday morning, I was in Fukuoka and went for a run.  Because the city is over 9 degrees west of Tokyo in Longitude, the morning comes later and it was very dark when I started.

A Chinese-looking pier at of the island of the Ohori Park on its lake.

There were many walkers, runners, and Radio Calisthenics exercisers.

The entrance of Fukuoka Castle and its moat.

Local fire department's vehicles were polished and ready to go when necessary.

Nakagawa River.

A memorial statue of Kawakami Otojiro - the first Japanese entertainer to tour western countries was born in Hakata.

Hakata Train Station - more construction was continuing.

It was a crisp morning and I enjoyed the nice run.
