Run: 8.5km in Shibaura ~ Shibakoen, Minato-ku, Tokyo

I went for quick run before another day of working in Tokyo. I attempted to hit Odaiba via Rainbow Promenade (the pedestrian road below Rainbow bridge) as suggested on Jog Note and some other Japanese website.

Jog Note: 芝浦〜お台場コース

It’s open only after 9am so this morning (as early as 6am) I aborted the plan. I hit the turn to North to see if I can run along the Sumida River side. I know the tourist cruise runs it through, and I once remember that I cycled there when I was in Tokyo in 2001-2004. The running path seems to be closed, I don’t know what for, but perhaps renovation. I see some parts have been changed from bare concrete to nice board walk looking panels. Anyway, it’s closed so I turned to the main street of Keihin road.

The next target is Hamamtsu-cho and Shiba Daimon – the place I used to stay. Nice to see the things haven’t changed (old futon shop, bike shop, etc..) and things changed a lot (restaurants and bars). I went through the street in front of my apartment in Shibakoen, and ran around Shibakoen Park and coming down South on my way back.

Perhaps tomorrow morning, I will go directly North to hit Shibakoen Park and go further North to see Ginza.
