Policeman stops a car and says to the driver, "Have you been drinking Sir?".

Ok, towards the end of last year, I promised an Epilogue to this Japanese saga. Well this is not it either, I just thought I'd post it here.

Being in lock down with the rest of the planet, I was rummaging around stuff at home today and came across this calendar a mate of mine brought me back from his visit to Japan some time ago (Pete Townsend is simply keeping the calendar flat):



Naturally the January 2008 pinup caught my eye, seeing I've ridden her  :) though mine was probably a later model?



The one below also seems familiar from my visit, along with the topography which reminds me of the line to Hakone, but I'm probably way off base. @railsquid ?

Correct, you are way off base :P.

The train pictured is an express train of a design unique to JR Tokai, and is not native to the Hakone area. Peering at the text, it looks like the particular train depicted is the "Wideview Nanki", which runs part-way down the Kii Peninsula southwest of Nagoya. If I recall correctly, you visited some museum in the Nagoya area, so you may have seen this or a similar train then.

To make a change from the usual DVD during lock down last night, I read through all 29 pages of this to relive the trip - took an hour and a half!
