#INDIERUNNERTAKEOVER by @tessilorgat

Whatsapp conversations with Tessie led to this, she is currently in Japan studying. I met Tessie while I was a beginner braamfie runner and I did not know anybody. A few years later we have a braamfie runner in Kyoto and because there is no crew in Kyoto... 

SHE STARTED HER OWN! and during our whatsapp conversations I asked her to show us her new life. What I enjoyed about this takeover was that she exposed to her surroundings, she showed us Japanese culture. 

I know that when I shop in Japan, I will have to buy large tights instead of medium because you must always buy one size up. Scroll below to immerse yourself in Japanese culture through the eyes of a Jo'burger.

Oh ja, I was actually quiet shocked that they run at 10 pm or midnight. 


Hi :) @tessilorgat here, taking over this page to exchange some running pics. My crew is @braamfierunners in Joburg , but since moving to Japan last year , I've had to find new streets and and people to run with (who I'll introduce you to in a bit). Glad to do this on the biggest day on the SA running calendar: It's #Comrades2015 !! S/O to my crew mates back home as they take on 89kms in the Ultimate Human Race @netswa @lelethujordan @yongmaster ... Stay tuned #RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto #ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner #IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin #BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning #NikeWomen


Throwing back to by far the raddest run in the Land of the Rising Sun. Connected with @_k_h and @afe_tokyo a couple of days after arriving to take on Tokyo's crazy glowing Shibuya streets . #RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto#ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner #IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin#BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning #NikeWomen


Meet some of my running mates in Kyoto @ryantheelephant @ascurated@maikiyamashita @tessilorgat @daisyandchu . We are Hashirō Kyoto and you can catch us on www.hashirokyoto.com and Facebook.com/HashiroKyoto #RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto #ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner#IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin #BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning#NikeWomen


This is Teramachi Arcade - a popular spot for shopping and hanging out in Kyoto. We ran here one night after the stores had closed (that's this pic) & tonight we've invited a few more people to join. Will let you know how it goes.#HashiroKyoto #LateNightArcadeTakeover #RunRevolution#ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner #IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin#BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning #NikeWomen @tessilorgat @ascurated@daisyandchu @its_miyabi_tc @agira_assumane


Shopping for snacks and drinks for our runners before they arrive tonight . We plan to run 3 of these alleys for an easy 5km #RunRevolution#HashiroKyoto #ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner #IndieRunnerTakeOver#MzansiGaijin #BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning #NikeWomen


Always take 1 size bigger when buying clothes in Japan ! @ascurated kinda forgot this rule and can barely breathe in his Nike Pro tonight #RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto #ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner#IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin #BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning#NikeWomen #NikePro @tessilorgat


Tonight's Arcade turn up! So, this folded arms thing somehow became a thing .... #RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto #ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner#IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin #BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning#NikeWomen @tessilorgat 


Kyoto has something like 2000 shrines and temples scattered around a relatively small city. You're guaranteed to pass by at least a couple on every run here, even in the shopping arcade! #RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto#ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner #IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin#BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning #NikeWomen #NikePlus @tessilorgat


Late-night run = late-night snacks . Grabbed some Aloe yoghurt , Salmon onigiri & Green tea on the way home for the long night ahead. (Still need to complete a report due tomorrow). Matcha Kit Kat is my weekend cheat - There's been more than 200 Kit Kat flavours introduced here !!!#RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto #ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner#IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin @tessilorgat


That sure was fun, but duty calls and so I'm signing out. You can follow@tessilorgat for more pics on running (and life) in Japan (as told by a South African). And best you join us for a run in Kyoto soon - www.hashirokyoto.com OR Facebook.com/hashirokyoto . This pic was taken at Fushimi Inari Shrine, one of my (many) favourite places here. 🏽#RunRevolution #HashiroKyoto#ThatIndieRunner #IndieRunner #IndieRunnerTakeOver #MzansiGaijin#BridgeTheGap #NikeRunning #NikeWomen #NikePlus
