I know I’ve posted about Japan’s Shinkansen, and thought I’d never write about trains again. They didn’t interest me until I spotted the Thomas trains on the way to Mr Fuji.
Who wouldn’t get caught up in the hype celebrating Thomas Land’s twentieth anniversary when every train station from Otsuki Station to Kawaguchiko Station had a Thomas sign?
Not only every station carried a Thomas the Train character, there were even specially painted trains with all the book characters. Unfortunately for me, I got to ride an ordinary train, but could still view the special ones chugging by in the opposite direction.
