Some more of Paul’s Japan pictures…..
My plans have changed for the next two days because the weather has turned rather cold and the forecast is not great for where I was intending to go. The new plan is …. insane….
Day trip to Wuhan?
Instead of visiting a Shinto shrine up on the north coast tomorrow, I am doing a circuit on the trains to take in a scenic route I have never done and on relatively new train which was still on test when I was here in 2017. The route is Kyoto – Nagoya – Matsumoto – Tokyo – Kyoto. It will take about 11 hours.
A few trains from today, mostly at Nagoya.
Back on the trains again. Weather has improved significantly, still cold, but dry at the moment.
Already done Kyoto to Nagoya on the Shinkansen and then on to Matsumoto on Shinano Limited Express. Beautiful route, sat up behind the driver’s cab most of the way. Now on my way to Tokyo on the Chuo Main Line on an E353.
I am on a rarity here. On board a Japanese train that is late!
Mount Fuji, taken this afternoon from the Tokaido Shinkansen travelling at 175mph with a Canon EOS 750D camera and a 300mm telephoto lens.
