I spent a night in Kochi on Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, I could enjoy a nice run in this old city.
Palm trees along Kagami River.
Three greats that contributed in making "New Japan" about 150 years ago - l to r: Takechi Hanpeita, Sakamoto Ryoma, and Nakaoka Shintaro.
One of the few remaining old samurai houses.
A little river that used to be used for home-use water.
The election poster - October 22.
Many houses are up on the hill.
Back at Kagami River.
Animals gather by the river.
Back towards the center of the city - small river.
Most of the city is at very low altitude.
The entrance to the top part of Kochi castle - it was closed before 9:00 am.
The Tenshu of the castle.
The statue of the famous wife of Yamanouchi Kazutoyo. She is as famous as the samurai that became the lord of this region - Tosa.
This lovely city really has many famous Japanese historical figures!
