Walking Around Kannai (Yokohama)

Went to Isezaki-cho for sushi tonight, then walked around Kannai.  Very lively tonight, lots of people out having a good time.

About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.

    Are u still running out there? I’m planing to do the same as it seems the only thing u could do in this hopeless country called Japan

    • Hi Manel,

      No longer running in Japan, moved to San Diego, CA about 6 months ago. However, I really enjoyed running in Japan, there are lots of interesting nooks and crannies to explore around Yokohama. I find the very early morning is the best time to run, not a lot of people and traffic, although it can be windy and cold at times. My favorite place to run was along the bayfront from Yamashita Park and down by Minatomirai. The industrial area from Honmoku to Isogo to Hakkeijima Sea Paradise is great for any weekend long runs. Good luck with your running and let me know if you have any questions!
