A selection of brief clips showing my travels from Narita Airport to Akita along the eastern side of Honshu. All of this content is available as stand alone clips should you wish to look through my channel. You will see the incredible variety of train types and colour schemes in use on various lines and companies. I barely scratched the surface as I had planned 28 days of video production. My trip was cut short by the disaster of March 11. I was stranded for four days, information was sketchy and family pressure forced me to cancel the remainder of the trip. In hindsight I could have finished the last 13 days safely but as they say "hindsight is a wonderful thing". Four days of aftershocks, a day of hunger, cold and no communication took their toll. I'm not whinging, I got out of it easily compared to some but it does leave a nasty taste in ones mouth and at the time going home seemed like the best choice.
