The train system in Tokyo is, without a doubt, truly incredible. Similarly undeniable, however, is how incredibly busy said system can be. So while it’s possible to travel pretty much anywhere, the journey might well be a little unpleasant to say the least. But head to the Japanese countryside, and it’s a completely different story. Yes, the trains are often laughably infrequent, but once on board they can be fabulously relaxing.
*Over the last few days while traveling and riding trains like the one above, a site update was causing comments to be rejected. Sorry about that — I had no idea at all. It’s all fixed now though, so comments should work as normal once again.
Love it! So peaceful. My kinda train travel. 🙂
P.S. happy to see the comments fixed! 🙂
Likewise. It was wonderfully relaxing. So different from Tokyo. A train journey to enjoy, rather than merely put up with.
Very cool. I’m always happy when the journey is a fun part of a trip. Great looking old seats too!
Yeah, it was a great little train. Like stepping back in time.
There’s a nice feeling about this pic. A quietness. Nicely done.
Cheers. It was a genuinely relaxing train journey, so great to hear at least some of that came through in the photo.
I feel like I can almost hear and smell the train from this picture. Nicely done. Much more pleasant than a rush hour Nambu Line train, too.
Yes, it really was. A thoroughly enjoyable journey rather than one that has to be endured.
