Neighborhood Walks

During A's mom's first trip here, she spotted this map near our subway station. We had fun walking the course together, and I have since walked it a few more times with guests. These little neighborhood spots are lovely and peaceful most days, but are fun to see on holidays too when more people are visiting them.

This walk goes around a nearby park - quite different from the above pockets of green found within dense neighborhoods - Heiwa Park covers almost 400 acres. For some reason it has proved to be much more difficult to accurately follow, although I've enjoyed seeing new areas of the park every time I've walked it. For being such a big city, Nagoya provides a lot of green space to enjoy, from small spots to large areas.
