代々木公園の秋 (Yoyogi Park in Autumn)

Photobucket

I took these pics on my run in Yoyogi Park this morning. The colours in Tokyo are just stunning in autumn and it's so lovely running with the fresh autumn air. I always feel so lucky to live in this incredible city.

There were so many leaves I could hardly make out the jogging path!

Happy Weekend Sandwiches. I'm going to my very first nabe party at my friends house. What are you doing this weekend?

  3. Thanks Lavender Playground! I was scared of slipping on those leaves! but luckily I didn't! And they are so pretty and crunchy!

    Hello Miss Sophia! Good on YOU for doing the 100 pushup thing! My old trainer in Sydney once tried to get me to do that. I think I did it for a night or two! naughty sandwich!

  7. Beautiful! I love the last photo - just a wonderful and inviting bed of yellow leaves covering the ground. That's what fall is all about! Thanks for sharing these delightful seasonal images!

  9. November is my favorite month in Japan. Everything, the color, the food, the weather, etc., is just so perfect.

    By the way will you get to go home for Christmas and/or New Year's? If not, I hope you have somewhere to go to and someone to hang out with. Being in a foreign country during holiday seasons can suck sometimes.

    You know the third picture has an old postcard feeling – it makes the park look even more dreamy...

    Hello See Hear Say! Your weekend sounds lovely! Actually I took these pics just with my iphone!

    Hello Jennifer, autumn has such a lovely palette doesn't it!

    Hi Laura Keller, oh thank you so much for your kind words about these little iphone pics!

    Hello Dee Purdy, ha ha thank you! That's so sweet of you to say!

    Hello Aixxx, It's perfect isn't it! I can't wait to experience April in Tokyo though too! I've already been back to Sydney twice for work since living in Tokyo so sadly I am not sure that I'll be able to travel to Australia this Christmas :( But I have lots of lovely friends here in Tokyo so I'll have a little Christmas party with home made bon bons, mulled wine, and a tanabata inspired Christmas tree! I can't wait! You're so sweet to check in on me though! P.S. I always love looking at your daily food photos! I've bought and made so many things inspired by your meals! I wish I could develop the taste for natto! Ganbarimasu!

    Hello Random Elephant! Oh silly me I should have linked to nabe party! So sorry that you had to google it yourself :( I hope your boyfriends aunts birthday party was super fun!


    Thank you Joshyola :)

    Hello Karen Barbe, oh yes it does doesn't it! ha ha it was just taken with my little iphone! I am surprised the colours came out so nice!

    Hi FH, thanks for your kind words about my little iphone snaps!

    Hiki-chan! Arigatou! They were taken on my Nikon - ha ha just kidding - i took them on my iphone! bikkuri shita! I actually walked to Yoyogi Park and then ran twice around it before walking home again. It was around 9.5 kms all up :)

  22. This is so pretty! all the fallen leaves make for a good jumping shot! hehe. But I doubt it will be a good jogging path at this kind of the year. I would love to try an Autumn Picnic Party there despite the cold.
