Inokashira Park - Details

I could go for a run this morning - the first time in over one month!  Had to take it easy - but could run a very enjoyable run around Inokashira Park.  Because I ran slowly, I could see details of the park.

A rock engraved with a sign of the park.  It says "Inokashira Park - administered by the City of Tokyo".  "The City of Tokyo" does not exist since 1943 when it became a prefecture.

This monument says that the city was opened in May of the sixth year of Taisho or 1917.

A sign for Nishi-En or West-side Park.


A playground in Nishi-En.

A trail by Tamagawa Josui.

The map of the bird sanctuary in the park.


A small appendix part of the park.

A cute little cafe.

Directions.

Benten Pond is pretty dry now.

The shrine.




Water is still being pumped to the main part of the pond to keep Benten Pond dry.

The water pipes were being routed by the main pond.

Sankaku Koen - a nice field by Inokashira Koen Station.

Children play by Kanda River by Sankaku Koen.

This was a short and slow but a very enjoyable run around the familiar park.
