Running sights: Odaiba & Edogawabashi

My last running meetup followed this path (7.3 miles) : Shimbashi station > Rainbow Bridge > Odaiba Marine Park > Odaiba aqua city > Daiba station. It was a bit muggy but it was nice to see the south side of the city. Thank goodness it didn’t rain – I seem to never have an umbrella handy every time it rains.

The jogging meetup set for yesterday was cancelled but I decided to run on my own and explore the so-called shitamachi areas in Edogawabashi. Very smooth, beautiful route, one big hill, then some downhill on way back. 6.2 miles total.

Prior to the start of the run I passed by a cozy temple in Kagurazaka called Zenkokuji Temple (better known as Bishamonten Temple).

I ran along the Kandagawa River into Toyama area towards Shinjuku on Meiji Dori, down Shinmejiro Dori, back along the river. Through Toshima city and stopped by Shinedogawa park. Definitely starting to see the leaves change into lovely autumn colors.

Shinedogawa park was a real gem in a very hidden location most likely meant for locals only. Cleanliness and maintenance of garden: A++ Super peaceful, serene and quiet to the point of being slightly eerie. There is something to be said about the impact and silent feeling from seeing still water reflecting the nature upon it. If I ever wanted to write a book, I would do so here, on a Sunday morning.
