Walking Back: More Farms and Lunch

The walk back home brought us up north to Izumi Ward in Yokohama, then back over to Shonandai in Fujisawa. We stopped for lunch, too.

These are some more farm pictures. You’ll notice some black fabric in one picture. Those are supposed to be scarecrows.

We passed by Kotohira Shrine. I’ve been there before, but it was about 4 years ago.

Here are the Yokohama Subway and Sotetsu Line bridges across the Sakai River going to Shonandai.

Now it’s Sakai River and some more farms next to the river. The third one shows rice hanging and drying.

And back at Shonandai Station. Soon, it’s home.

Rice Harvesting and More

In this set of photos, we went down into the valley and saw a lot of rice fields. It’s harvesting time. We crossed the Katase River, saw a small shrine I can’t find the name of, then headed up the hill toward Matano Park. There’s a tower you can see in some pictures. That’s the library at the Yokohama College of Pharmacy.
