Yeah fast train approaching - now the trainriding can begin.

I leave Hiraizumi and thanks to the fast trains they have here in Japan the trip south is done quickly. I actually have to change train twice - but both stops are only for a couple of minutes - I was actually a little nervous about the stop in Tokyo. The station in Tokyo is pretty big - given it is the main hub in all of Japan for the shinkansen trains. But even though I only had a few minutes to find the right track for my next train and get over there it all works quite all right.

 

I get on the next train travelling towards Osaka - but I will get off in Nagoya. I get out and it is just early in the afternoon - I have managed to do sightseeing in the morning and travel 800k - and I still got a little time to explore the city.

 

But in reality I am not really up for much sightseeing today - the climate has change remarkably during my train ride. I left this morning in decent weather - nice and sunny with a low humidity. But now it is still sunny with a high humidity - which make the city a bit of a challenge for my sightseeing ambitions.

 

After hanging around for a while I figure I might as well get out and have a look around. I walk down towards the castle in the city - which is also the neighbor of the Achi Perfectual Gymnasium. Where I want to go early tomorrow morning - hence I use this sightseeing trip as a bit of a orientation tour for my early morning adventures tomorrow. Outside of the gymnasium are a long line of taxis waiting for costumers - there are none around but at six the sumo tournaments will end for the day and lots of people will be swarming out to catch a taxi. And sure at six people come out in huge numbers and the taxis get busy. I leave and go to have a look at a nearby temple where the lights in the many lamps have been turned on creating a special effect here in the early evening.
