A Train through Mie

It’s been so hot lately that it’s been a bit dangerous to go outside. Still, go outside I sorta did.

Being stuck in the wake up- work- go to bed loop had me quite down despite my best efforts. So, I decided to go on a daytrip.

After stopping at the doctor’s, I jumped on the Kintetsu train headed for Kashikojima–the last stop on the line I took to get to Yokkaichi everyday.

I bought a special limited express ticket, but it would still take about three hours to arrive there.

During the ride, I messaged two of my friends fron the states.

I sent them pics from my trip and caught up on current events. They were both very kind in humoring me.

There were many things to see, both ways. Mostly, there were huge fields of green.

Mie is a farming prefecture, so there were miles upon miles of farms.

There was also a peninsula that lead to the Pacific Ocean.

There were three stops in particular where you could see the water.

While riding the train, I ate a lot of snacks. Mostly dried fruit.

If you have the time and the funds, I would suggest trying it.
