A Walk around Daita Hachiman Jinja / 代田八幡神社の散歩

Now that I've complete my Mom posts, I shall go back to my own neighborhood walks, restaurants, and whatnot again.  Today's post was a walk I took at the beginning of April.  It was when I took off some time from work because of my broken wrist.  Good thing it wasn't my foot or ankle or I probably would have never left the apartment.  Daita is just a short walk up the road from our place and as it was a nice day, I thought I would take a detailed walk around the Daita Hachiman Shrine.

お母さんのネタが終了いたしましたので、散歩や行ったレストランなどのネタに戻ります。今日は代田にある代田八幡神社のお散歩。4月の頭に行ってみた。ちょうど仕事から休んだ時期です。左手首の骨折でしばらく仕事が出来なかった状況でした。足首じゃなくって良かったかも。足がやられたら多分うちから一歩も出なかったかも知りません。代田は自分のアパートから歩いて10分程度なんで、今回は代田八幡神社をゆっくり探索しようと思った。

The Daita Hachiman Shrine is located near this busy road which also happens to be the road we live on.

代田八幡神社は環状七線の隣にある。実はうちのアパートも環七沿いです。



After spending a good half hour at the shrine, I strolled on one of the walking trails nearby.

Cool stone frogs in the stream / 石の蛙発見



I'm not an ornithologist so I have no idea what kind of bird this is, but it looks cool!

鳥博士ではございませんので、どういう種類か分かりませんが、なんだかかっこいい!








This was just too cute that I had to include it.  

可愛いすぎ、このワンちゃん。

The dog is the best bit! ;)

PS: Everything looks so new and clean in your neck of the woods, unlike my beloved scruffy shitamachi!

I posted the dog pic on Facebook and got something like 19 "likes" from friends.

I may venture to shitamachi on my next day off if the weather permits.
