Afternoon Coffee (Yokohama)

After running 22 miles this morning, the wife and I took a bike ride down to the Yokohama Archives of History Museum, which used to be the British Consulate General building back in the early 1900s.  They had an interesting exhibit of photography of 1950s Yokohama when U.S. Occupation Forces were running the city.  Unfortunately, they don’t allow photos, so I couldn’t get any pictures inside the museum.  Afterward, we stopped for some cheap coffee and baked bread close to Yokohama Stadium on Nihon-Odori Street.

Sidewalk along Yamashita Park.

Corner of Nihon-Odori street.

Interesting convienence store, has a bakery and a variety of fresh coffee to choose from. Also, has tables and chairs so you can take in the atmosphere along Nihon-Odori street - and very cheap.

Afternoon snack, coffee and a couple of fresh baked breads (salt and cheese bread) - total cost US$5.75.

These four Laborghinis were line up in front of where we were drinking coffee. I'm not much of a car guy, but the cars do draw attention.

Taxi in Yokohama, very expensive. The meter starts at US$9.50 and that will only get you 2 kilometers before it starts clicking like mad. I think I'll stick to riding my bike.

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.
