Raketa na kolesih

Danes sem se lahko naužil vožnje z vlakom. Prepotoval sem kar 1230 km! Trikrat sem prestopil, a je vse tako organizirano, da sploh ni težav. Prvi (regionalni) vlak me je odpeljal do severne obale, drugi (shinkansen) na vzhod, tretji (shinkansen) in četrti (regionalni) pa daleč na sever otoka Honshu. Dejansko bi bilo izvedljivo, da bi se jutri odpeljal na Hokkaido (od velike noči povezan z novo zgrajeno shinkansen progo), a nekaj je treba pustiti za naslednjič, mar ne? ☺️

Zlasti sem užival v tretji etapi, saj je shinkansen res brzel in kar požiral kilometre - z izjemo zadnjega dela poti, ko je po ozkih dolinah vozil tako počasi, da se je moral strojevodja počutiti kot voznik porscheja na cesti po Baški grapi. ☺️ Obenem je bil lep pogled skozi okno.





Rocket on the wheels


Today I could really get the taste of riding trains. I travelled 1230 kilometres! There were three transfers along the way but everything is well organised so I had no problems. The first (regional) train took me to the northern coast near Toyama, the second (shinkansen) to the east and the third (shinkansen) and the fourth (regional) way up to the north. I could actually take another train tomorrow to Hokkaido (since easter directly connected to Honshu by shinkansen) but let's leave something for another visit, shall we? ☺️

Especially enjoyable was the third ride, speeding trough Japan, leaving miles behind (except for the last part where the narrow valley did not permit high speed) and observing the countryside through the window.
