Aomori Keirin Poster

We were over at Nara Keirin yesterday afternoon, while we go through the photos that we took of the racing here's a pic of a promotional poster for a GIII meeting at Aomori Keirin...


We get the feeling this may become a popular poster.

A Strange Town

Brad, leading.
 A ride down to Tenri last Sunday with Brad. First a little bit of climbing up to the dam...

Up at the dam.
 A few snaps of Brad's Nagasawa...



Then the descent into town. Tenri is the home of the Tenrikyo  sect, a "monotheistic, shinto derived new religion" and the town is dominated by their buildings and temples....


The rest of the town is fairly deserted and feels as if it has become trapped in some other time, you get the feeling that not much has changed here for the past half century...


 A brief refreshment stop...


 Then a gorgeous ride through the Nara countryside back to the normality of Nara city...

Harvest time.


An ode to another strange town...
