ALTHOUGH the leaves turned brown and people start wearing jackets again, it’s a fine morning.  For the last time in months, the sun shows her strength. In a couple of hours the sport fields and parks fill up with men and women catching not only soft balls but also those last warm rays of light. There’s a crisp chill in the air that tells things are going to change, but not now. Today in Tokyo, it’s good to be outside.


It’s always sunny on Google earth and when the weather is ok it’s good the visit an outdoor athletic club. Like the ones that dot the area west of Yoyogi Park, Tokyo. From the sky the running tracks look like oval ventilation holes and in a way they are. Images below are all from Google earth. The athletic clubs can be found west, northwest of Yoyogi Park.
