SL Hitoyoshi

March 26, 2013

We took a drive up to Hitoyoshi on a whim and happened to catch the steam locomotive passing through the Kumagawa river valley on its way back up to Yatsushiro. We also found a really interesting part of the railroad track on our way back where it makes a big loop followed immediately by a switchback. I think I’m going to want to check out more of the train photography possibilities around here. Those little stations in the mountains are really interesting.

Miyuki took this picture for me as we were driving along the valley. The power of landslides is incredible and really scary.
