Morning Bike Stroll (Yokohama)

After raining all day yesterday, the air this morning was so clean and crisp.  The wife and I rode our bikes around the Yokohama bayfront area to take in the peaceful morning.  Here are a few random photos.

The air this morning was so refreshing and the skies were blue.

Intersection close to Yamashita Park.

While crossing the street on our way to Yamashita Park we came across this somewhat hidden historical monument. It is a tribute to Dr. James Curtis Hepburn, who was instrumental in translating the Bible to Japanese, developing the first Japanese-English dictionary and importing Western medicine.

Looks like they have an Africa Festival this weekend in Yamashita Park.

I'm a fan of film director legend Akira Kurosawa and spotted a truck from his studio. Wonder where they are filming?

Starbucks coffee caffine fix.

Rare to see a Starbucks so empty. I'm sure it won't be for long.

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.
