I've gotten used to riding on Route 246 for just under half the distance. The Route 246 section is very fast, but not scenic and requires focus to stay safe among trucks and zooming cars. The other half has some nice stretches, down a river along the Yamato-Fujisawa bike path, for example, and through neighborhoods.

Yesterday, there was a lot of color, and I could not help but remember the hydrangea bushes along the driveway of the home were we lived when I was in elementary/middle school. A very pleasant ride, and a tail wind home.

|Lots and lots of hydrangeas around Tokyo these days. Ajisai!|
|This is where the flowers come from ...|
