A Nice Run in Kochi City

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.

Beautiful cosmos.

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.

Itagaki Taisuke - a Meiji Period poiltician.

The statue of the famous wife of Yamanouchi KazutoyoShe is as famous as the samurai that became the lord of this region - Tosa.

This lovely city really has many famous Japanese historical figures!
