We are taking advantage of a national holiday on Saturday (山の日) to take a family trip to Kusatsu, in Gunma prefecture, for some time in the onsen, plus swimming, archery, etc. So far, the views of the passing countryside have been spectacular.
The attached photo is of our ride out of town. This train might qualify for “oldie but goodie” status—no frills, but the windows were big, and the seats were spacious and comfortable.
What are you doing this weekend?
