I stayed overnight in Aioi, Hyogo last week. It is a small city, but Shinkansen stops. I could take a nice walk in the morning of Friday.
This is the entrance to Zenkoji Temple - formerly a local feudal lord's fortress.
I took a back-trail up to the top.
By the temple, also was shinto shrine.
The view of the area where the fortress used to be - the building on the right is the temple.
There's a nice little harbor.
Students running by the port.
A sunrise over the temple.
The local junior high school - students were already there in the school ground.
A monument at a park - distances to major cities are shown - from left - Sydney, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, San Francisco, New York, Mexico City, and Rio de Janeiro.
Students arriving on bicycles.
Aioi bridge - spans over the harbor.
Peronjo - a shopping complex that looks Chinese.
A view from Aioi Bridge - the building on the left is a big factory.
A nice picture drawn on a commercial building.
There are many rivers in Aioi.
