07 Oarai Station

This walk seemed to have everything about Japanese life. I saw groups of older people visiting historical sights, younger men search for anime characters, families enjoying the beach and swimming pools, shrines, big trees, statues, seafood, tea, you name it :-) 794 more words

13 Urizura Station

I completed this walk over a couple of days as I simply forgot the last two locations. Due to an incoming storm, I tried to complete this walk quickly and I zoomed in too far and missed the two stops on the right side. 647 more words

12 Nukada Station

I completed this walk on a hot and humid day while waiting for the England world cup semi-final. For the past month, I have been waking up at 3am to watch the matches due to the time difference. 555 more words

11 Nakaminato Station

I undertook this walk after I finished another one quite early. Unfortunately, it was a Monday and some of the places on that walk were closed. 663 more words

02 - Mito Station (Senba Lake and Kairakuen)

As there are four walks starting at Mito station I thought I would give them an extra long title. Also, full disclosure I did 3 walks in 2 days and decided to skip a few of the stops. 474 more words

14 Hitachi Ota

For a number of reasons, I think this might be one of my favourite walks from the book so far. Even driving to the area I saw so many lovely distractions, people cleaning and gardening public space, and generally happy people wandering around. 844 more words
