On wednesday I went on a long traintrip to Miyazu to (ab)use my Railpass to the max. Miyazu is a little fishertown on the north-coast of Kansai, which is not even mentioned in my Lonely Planet Travelguide. And usually that means there is absolutely, completely nothing to do. Which proved correct: the town was asleep and will only wake up when the summer-tourists come into town.
But as they say: “Der Weg ist das Ziel”. I had to change trains twice (Sonobe and Fukuchiyama); the last train was a private Rail-Company (which is very usual in Japan in the more remote areas) called “Kitakinkitango Miyafuku Line”.
Beautiful trains they use: the first wagon was the green one and the second was the blue one.
In the town was – of course more cherryblossoms:
.. and the “Flying Hatchman”!
But the most beautiful came on the way back: the train (red on the outside) had fresh flowers and PINK curtains! Beautiful! I believe in humanity again!!
