A Cold Morning Run in Sendai

This morning, I ran in Sendai.  It was not snowing, but the roads were icy.

It snowed the day before and froze the streets and especially sidewalks.

Former castle building.

The road to the main part of the castle was closed to automobiles.

It is  actually quite a climb.

The entrance to the former castle has a Torii.

The view of Sendai from the castle.

The eagle used to be at the top of the structure behind it until the earthquake.

A small shrine.

The statue of the local samurai hero.

The moat surface was frozen.

Hirose River again.
