Going to take a ride on a trolly train.
Sagano-line from Platform 32!!
Umahori Station, the one before the final station, is the closest
one to the first station for the trolly train.
About six minutes walk from Umahori Station
to Trolly Train Kameoka Station.
We had had a heavy rainfall early in the morning,
and it was wet everywhere.
At Kameoka Station,
there were lots of raccoons.
This is why. Raccoon in Japanese is ‘Tanuki.’ The sound ‘ta’
could mean ‘the others.’ ’Nuki’ could mean ‘to excel.’ Together,
‘tanuki’ represents the service which excels the others,
a play on a Japanese word.
All seats are designated.
Approximately 25 minutes one way.
A long-nosed goblin took the train
but got off at the next station.
The heavy rain earlier made the river all muddy but the forest
all fresh and green. Refreshing breeze ran
through the open carriage.
The retro style furnishing of the carriage.
Arrived at the destination, Saga Station.
The next stop, hot springs.
Tenzan no Yu. You can spend all day relaxing. Must visit again.
Unfortunately, my time was up. Went home by the bullet train.
At night, met two cats in Saitama.
