Weekend Runs: Nishiogi ~ Mitaka

I am happily back in Tokyo and am enjoying a beautiful weekend.  The temperature is unusually high (up to 27 deg. C), but because humidity is low, it is very nice.  I had good relaxed runs in our area - yesterday around Nishiogikubo and today Mitaka.

A little monument with a clock for the 100th year of the Village of Kichijoji.  It was probably built in 1978.  The governing zones changed quite often in this region.

Right by Nishogikubo Station, I found a cute figure.  It was designed and made by Satoshi Yabuuchi.  Learned that there are six of these placed around the station, so I decided to go to all of them.

This one is called "Hana no Doji" (Flower Child).

 "Osumo Doji" (Sumo Boys) at Nishiogi Minami Jijo Park.

A nice promenade leading to Momoi Harappa Park.

A sign calling for interest in joining a Pétanque Club.

"Uemuki Doji" (Looking Up Boys) at Nishiogi Chikiki Kumin Center.

"O-Asatsuyu Doji" (Big Morning Dew Boy) at Iogi Park.

"En Musubi Doji" (Marriage Making Boy) at Jizozaka by Ogikubo Jr. High School.

"Ryujin Doji" (Dragon Boy) at Nishiogi Kita Chuo Park.

And this morning, I ran through Inokashira Park and also around Mitaka Station.

An interesting picture at Gotenyama by Inokashira Park.

A cute display in front of a house by Mitaka Station.

Azalea flowers are beautiful now.

The Nishi-En track was used by a running club.
