lithiumangel lithiumangel 13 years Looking good here 🙂 It sure is refreshing to see little towns outside of Tokyo (not that i’m complaining about Tokyo pics offcourse :P) as Japan bloggers rarely get out of their way blogging anything but in Tokyo 🙂 (again there’s a reason for that since Tokyo is that interesting)

JR’s Bonden. I have more photos of this coming up shortly from the Bonden Festival held in Yokote
Definitely staring at this and thinking wow, familiar sights.. I love the shinkansen shots, rail shots, and the bento kiosks you took. I was taking a ride like this last year, went to Sendai, and not as far as you didn, but this is definitely a nice blog to keep up with. ^_^
12:56 Komachi leaving for Akita
Don’t you get the feeling your being watched O.O
sea of snow, literally hehe.
I didn’t know that Japan has this much snow when I first came here.
Wow.. Great views ^^
I do believe this is your train, am I correct?
Did you buy one for yourself?
Haven’t used one of these since my days in Wisconsin. What memories.
RT @tweetmeme http://bit.ly/aoGLwj A nice little trip to places we don’t normally don’t get to see. I love these kind of trips you do outside of the great area of Shibuya. Keep them coming, look forward to them.
If you could send me an e-mail on those Rilakkuma products, my wife and I were looking into adding those as a link to her website where we could drop ship products or something on that nature that I can manage from her website to generate more income, ok?
Oh this is great! My husband and I will be going up to Akita from Tokyo station in may/june. This is very helpful, thank you! ^_^
fantastic. I hope you have a great trip 🙂
Yes, the Shinkansen shots, bento kiosks and the smooth expanses of snow bring back happy memories of travelling to Kyoto by train many years ago. Outside looks so cold but everyone is snug and warm inside the Shinkansen, eating from bento boxes and drinking Asahi 🙂
I used to do the Kyoto trip a lot years ago. I can remember the ride down at lunch time seemed so relaxed, then I would come back on a Monday morning with all the commuters and it felt like I was just on the Yamanote Line. Very different 🙂
Love that dragon looking figure! He needs a Hello Kitty sticker though cause he looks too angry. lol lol
Love that first pic of the Shinkansen. It looks as if it should have wings and a jet engine just out of frame. The colours are so vivid too!!!
yes indeed, the jet train should depart from Tokyo station 🙂
As I understand, the most usable way of transportation in Japan is a train, however, in Japan its a Jet train. Is it much more beneficial to the environment?
This looks good
The character from picture #24 is the main character from the vintage (circa 1980s) fishing manga/anime Tsurikuchi Sampei. It’s been aired only in a few Euriopean countries (Italy and France as far as I know) outside of Japan.
Quite funny to see it used for advertisement in 2010 😀
TsurikIchi Sampei, sorry, spelt the name wrong 😀
