From the Sano Art Museum, I decided to take a local train to get back to Mishima Station. The train from Mishima Tamachi Station, the closest station to the museum, to Mishima Station is a short ride on the Izuhakone Railway Sunzu Line. Above all, riding a local train is fun. I had to buy a paper ticket, which is no longer seen in Tokyo, and my travel spirit was heightened.
Since riding a train in Japan is fun, riding a train overseas is even more special and enjoyable. Just thinking back a little, many memories come back to me. In Egypt, passengers were coming in through the windows of the train to get an open seat. In Bulgaria, I once found myself on a train at 1:00 a.m. that was headed to a destination that was not my destination. I was waiting for a train in a waiting room in China when I saw a message on an electronic board that read "Yellow River Flood" in Chinese characters.
When I think about it, the things that left a lasting impression on me were not so much the fun I had, but rather the trouble I got into when I could not understand Japanese common sense or was involved in things that would not be possible in Japan.
