Each neighborhood in Tokyo has small and medium sized parks. I stayed in Itibashi-ku and had a small park one block from my friends house. Every morning at six there were a few runners there to run the 0.516 kilometer loop. About ten blocks away was a such larger park with a 440 track, 600 path and a loop of about 2 kilometers. The local wrestling club provided great company and tough competition. A lady I met in the small park took me on a 12 mile running tour of shrines, museums, botanical gardens and mini zoos. Japan is great for runners.
