The third episode from my multi-part Japan Rail Series — a visual journey showcasing a variety of destinations during a 21-day rail itinerary across Japan. With an emphasis on capturing photography and video of aesthetic locations during the winter time, this journey aims to inspire people to visit the beautiful urban and rural destinations of Japan!
This is probably the most chilled section of our Japan Rail Series. Starting with a brief stop in Nagoya at the SCMAGLEV Museum, to learn about the development of the Shinkansen (Japanese bullet train) and the future of the Superconductive MagLev train (SCMAGLEV) set to launch in around 10 years time between Tokyo and Nagoya.
Our journey then continued onto Kinosaki Onsen, one of Japan’s most popular onsen towns, located remotely from other major cities in the West of Honshu, the main island of Japan. We had an exceptionally warm welcome from our host and enjoyed exploring the hot spring baths in our traditional Yukatas for the night.
This episode finishes in Kyoto, where I held a meet-up event and photowalk. Unfortunately, Elly’s grandmother fell ill during these days so she had to return to Tokyo whilst I stayed in Kyoto. We then managed to squeeze in a bit of exploration around the canal area, before moving on to our next destination, for the next episode!
