Yesterday I took my first ride out into the suburbs of Niigata City with Brian Southwick on my new 24 speed Kona smoke. After riding through the outskirts of Niigata city we then had the pleasure of cruising through quiet neighbourhoods, a far cry from the busy traffic in the city. Passing along one street we spotted a very old wooden post office complete with it's old round style post box. We were surprised to find such an old post office still standing as a lot of these buildings get torn down to make way for more modern developments. Further on we saw a park in the distance and on closer inspection found a large pond packed with local fishermen, all looking for some space in which to fish. It seemed like the whole neighbourhood was here enjoying themselves. Pictured above is a photo I took at the pond.
