Yesterday morning, I had a nice and relaxed run in Nasushiobara. The weather was cloudy and still pretty cold. No cherry blossom yet - the season is at least a month behind Tokyo.
I ran down south from my hotel by the station.
A beautiful white plum tree flowers.
Here are pink ons by a building with a family crest of plum flower on the building.
Pretty little trees.
I ran through a forest of Japanese cedar trees.
A field is getting prepared for planting of rice.
A dump truck by Kumagawa (Bear River).
The river had some construction work being done.
Pretty flowers by an old bridge.
Crows flew away as I pointed my iPhone camera.
A little field with preparatory earthwork.
I crossed over the river - no water there.
Mineyama Park had pretty daffodil flowers.
A playground of the park.
This was a very nice park.
