Shinkansen on the way to Kitakami
Here I am eating a special shinkansen anniversary boxed Bento on the way to Kitakami.
It's 9:31 am in the morning on Sunday, May 6th in Japan-time and 5:30 PM on Saturday Pacific Standard Time (happy early birthday, Mom). I'm all packed except for the laptop. Anna is taking a quick shower and then I'm off to Kitakami station to get on the shinkansen
. We didn't move fast enough this week to get reserved tickets, so I will be jumping on one of the three cars that are for unreserved passengers. After that trip, I will arrive in Ueno Station and head for the Narita Airport.
It's been a great trip, although I know I didn't update as much as I should have. I will have to add photographs upon my return.
See many of you soon.
