代々木公園

Is this the best place and time to spread fear?

こんなところにも、不安にさせる看板は必要ですか。
My favorite line, on this sign outside the bathroom, is “Avoid showing skin.” I know there were incidents of dengue fever from mosquitos in Yoyogi park in late summer. But it’s been too cold for mosquitos since October, and how exactly will you use the restroom “without showing skin”?!

Is this my future behind the yellow tape?

これは私の未来かもしれません。かっこいいカメラも携帯ベンチを持ってきました。

In addition to fancy cameras, one senior even brought his own mini-bench.

Dance troupe gets ready in Yoyogi Park

代々木公園で何のダンス祭りなのか分からなかったけれど、みんな大きな髪と素敵な浴衣を着ています。

I am not sure what type of dance festival it was, but this group has incredibly high hair and great costumes.

Break-time and waiting for the next jump

休憩時間に、次のジャンプを待っています。若いので、怖いもの知らずなのでしょうか? 見るだけで充分楽しかったです。

Does youth make these riders more fearless? Pedal Day also featured BMX jumping. It was fun to watch.

Fantastic bicycle pit stop at Little Nap Coffee Stand

自転車を乗っているときに、代々木公園の隣にあるLittle Nap Coffee Stand でよく充電します。おしゃれな僕のサービスステーションです。

Yoyogi Park is my preferred route to get anywhere in Tokyo by bike. Little Nap Coffee Stand next to the park is always a great place to re-charge. Closed Mondays.
