THE CALL OF FAR-AWAY HILLS

  We went to Mt. Hachimantai national park to see autumn leaves in Akita and Iwate.

                              八幡平に行きました。

There are various kind of bullet trains in Tokyo railroad station.



Hayate. はやて。



Yamabiko. やまびこ。




Hayabusa. はやぶさ。The fastest bullet train in the world,as same as TGV in France.


We got on this Hayabusa bullet train,  this train would run 320km/h.

  9. I have never ridden a bullet train. It looks like it would be so much fun! :-)

    These photographs are beautiful, Minoru. I especially love "Zooming Up." Those blues are gorgeous.

  10. Great photos - I reckon you could sell these as wonderful mountain views as postcards!
    I remember the wonderful Japanese bullet trains and their precision on time arrival (the rest of the world marvels at Japanese on time train arrivals!) I have never been on the Habayusa it looks very futuristic!
    Have a wonderful week

  13. こんにちは。岩手山も鳥海山も頂上は雪景色ですね。八幡平や大沼は秋景色で、紅葉と、雪をかぶった山肌と、青空がとても綺麗です。そして後半のほうの山のzooming up写真ははどれも幻想的で素晴らしいです。
    もう10月も終わりだし、きっと寒かったでしょうね。最後の東北新幹線ですが、私は「はやぶさ」が一番好きです。

       こんばんは。おほめにあずかり嬉しいです。八幡平の頂上からこんなに景色が良く見える事はめったに無いそうです。
       美しさを堪能しました。 雲海がもう少しはっきり見えれば良かったです。
       はやぶさがこんなに早いとは知りませんでした。
