I am the editor of The Japan News, but when I'm not in the office, one of my hobbies is cycling. In the course of my rides, I often find nice spots to stop. Once in a while, I will use this space on The Japan News website to share my snapshots of those places. The first one is a sculpture titled "Cosmic Elevation" by artist Atsushi Shikata at the front gate of Fussa Minami Koen park in the city of Fussa, western Tokyo. The park is situated along the Tama River cycling road, with drink vending machines and public restrooms near the sculpture.
