I had the most beautiful evening run today along Kawaguchiko Lake. A few pictures…
- Lake Kawaguchiko is a very popular recreational fishing place.
- Lined with blossom trees
On my way down to the lake I passed a friendly neighbour who chatted away inquiringly in Japanese. I told her I was going for a run and made swinging motions with my arms to indicate as much (amazing the new heights of body language). She looked particularly interested and smiled broadly which I thought a little strange. As I hit my stride on my regular route along the lake’s edge I noticed ribbons at various intervals with the logo “Ultra Trail Mount Fuji.” The sweet neighbour had mistaken me for a trail runner! My illusions were soon shattered by a pair of Spaniards that came thundering towards me in fancy lycra running gear but they seemed to be the only other runners that evening.
