Then from Minami-Urawa station to Yoshikawa station via Musashino line.

 

To get back to Shin Yokohama, I went in reverse.

At Shin Yokohama station, I went to Refresh 60 via Blue line

 

After my visit, I went to Yokohama station.

 

My plan was to experience the Enoshima monorail, but Satoshi-san picked me up and we drove to Enoshima Island. Satoshi-san then drove me to Shinagawa station so I could go to Shinjuku station. I used the Yamanote line.

 

After my dinner with Original JDM guy, I left Shinjuku station for Tokyo station via Marunochi line.

 

Since our dinner over ran the time, I was ony have a few minute to get to Platform 9 with a few items. My luggage was in storage and I don’t think I would have made it!

This was my Sunrise Seto experience which is the last night train in Japan. I would be getting off at Okayama in the morning.

I had enough time to buy an eki ben and set up. Unfortunately,  I wasn’t able to get a shower card.

The trip was overnight.


 

Saturday

  • Okayama station to Shin Kobe station (Shinkansen)
  • Shin Kobe station to Sannomiya station (Subway Seihan-Yamate line)
  • Sannomiya station to Shin Nagata station (Tokaido Sanyo line)
  • Then reverse
  • Shin Kobe station to Kyoto station (shinkansen)
  • Kyoto station to Fushimi Inari station (JR Nara line)
  • Kyoto station to Tokyo station (Shinkansen)
  • Tokyo station to Mishima station (Shinkansen)
  • Mishima station to Fuji station (Tokaido main line

 

Now was the back track. I was suppose to be in Fujinomiya by the end of the day, which is in Shizuoka. I unfortunately left my luggage at Tokyo Station, so I would eventually overshoot Shizuoka and go directly to Tokyo AND THEN BACK TO SHIZUOKA!!!

Anyways, time to head back that way.

I took the Shinkansen from Okayama station to Shin-Kobe station.

 

At Shin Kobe Station, I wanted to see Gigantor statue, so I I had to go to Sannomiya Station via Subway Seihan-Yamate line

 

 

I then had to jump trains. Sannomiya station bottom (where subway is) and head outside on top, to get on the JR Tokaido Sanyo main line.

 

then reverse steps.

Shin-Kobe station to Kyoto station via Shinkansen

 

Kyoto station is huge, so I explored Escalator mountain.

Not only that, Kyoto station is one of my favorite because of Escalator Mountain!

 

After that, I had to visit the Fushimi Inari shrine, this is the famous Torii Gates. You have to take the JR Nara line (D) to get there.

 

I bought a few things around Kyoto station and waited for the Shinkansen as I was heading to Tokyo.

 

Once there I had to change really quick and get on the Shinkansen again to Mishima station and then go to Fuji station from there.


Sunday

 

  • Fujinomiya station to Fuji station (Minobu line)
  • Fuji station to Mishima station (Tokaido line)
  • Mishima station to Shin Yokohama station (Shinkansen)

After the meeting, Okuni-san dropped me off at fujinomiya station.

 

Then Fuji station to Mishima station via Tokaido main line

 

I met with my aunt there, to get a few things. Then I jumped on the bullet train for Shin Yokohama station
