【Introduction of deep spots in Taiki Town】 📍 Former JNR Hiroo Line Taiki Station Ruins In Taiki Town, there are still the remains of the station building of the Hiroo Line, a railway connecting Obihiro and Hiroo, which operated until Showa 62. Taiju Station opened in 1930 (Showa 5), and at its peak, the number of passengers per day exceeded 1,000 Use. The place where the tracks used to be is now a square called "Taiju Traffic Park", and the station building still remains. You can't go inside the building, but if you look through the window, you can see that the ticket gates and waiting rooms are still there. On the remains of the platform, there are still station name signs and signal levers. In Hakurin Park on the north side of Taiki Town Town Hall, the SL "No. 59611", which ran on the Hiroo Line until 1975 (Showa 50) after being active in various parts of Hokkaido, is on display. It seems that it was installed at the urging of SL fans in the town. Why don't you come and feel the remnants of the railway running in Taiki Town?

NICE TO MEET EVERYONE WHO WATCHES COOL JAPAN VIDEOS! This is the Kawasaki City Tourism Association. We will guide you through the charm of the city that will make you want to visit Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture. Best regards! ◆◆◆ What is Kawasaki City ◆◆◆ Kawasaki City is located in the northeastern part of Kanagawa Prefecture, between Tokyo and Yokohama, and is a vibrant city with a population of about 1.54 million (as of April 2023 (Reiwa 5)). Since it is adjacent to Tokyo, it has flourished as a transportation hub since ancient times. It has both the aspect of an industrial zone and the aspect of a city where nature and culture coexist. Kawasaki City has a long history, and in the Edo period, it flourished as one of the 53 Tokaido roads. In addition, Kawasaki Daishi (Heiken-ji Temple) has been crowded with worshippers since ancient times, and about 3 million people visit Kawasaki Daishi for the first time alone, and the number of first-time worshippers in 2023 is the third highest in Japan after Meiji Jingu Shrine and Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. Currently, the King Sky Front, which creates new industries based on world-class research, with a focus on the life sciences and environmental fields, is located right in front of Haneda Airport, making it a hub for open innovation. ◆◆◆ Introduction of sightseeing spots in Kawasaki City ◆◆◆ Here are some of the most popular tourist spots in Kawasaki City, albeit briefly. ◇ Tokaido Kawasaki Hostel Exchange Center You can learn about the history of the area at a facility that conveys the atmosphere that flourished as a post town "Kawasaki-juku" on the 53rd line of the Tokaido Highway. ◇Kawasaki Ukiyo-e Gallery It is a museum that exhibits valuable ukiyo-e prints that are highly regarded both in Japan and abroad, directly connected to the north exit of JR Kawasaki Station. ◇ Ikuta Ryokuchi It is the largest urban park in Kawasaki City and is popular as an urban oasis. Admission is free, and many cherry blossom viewers visit as a famous place for cherry blossoms in the spring season. ◇Kawasaki City Fujiko F. Fujio Museum It is a facility where you can experience the world of the works of the national manga artist "Fujiko F. Fujio-sensei" who created "Doraemon". In addition to Japanese, voice guidance is available in four languages: English, Chinese, and Korean, so foreign tourists visiting Japan can enjoy it with confidence. ◇Kawasui Kawasaki Aquarium It is a new sensation entertainment aquarium that opened in front of Kawasaki Station in July 2020.

The factory night view cruise, where you can see the night view of the factory area such as the Keihin Industrial Area from the boat, is also popular, and you can enjoy the scenery that can only be experienced here. ◆◆◆ Events and festivals in Kawasaki City ◆◆◆ ◇Kawasaki Daishi Wind Chime City It is a festival that represents Kawasaki City, which is held every year in July, and is popular as a summer tradition. The cool sound of about 30,000 wind chimes of 900 types gathered from all over the country heals visitors. ◇Kawasaki Sanno Festival It is the largest festivals in the Kawasaki area, held every August at Inage Shrine, and the highlight is the Great Mikoshi Shrine. In addition, the "Ancient Miyaza Ceremony," a ceremony in which dishes using ancient cooking methods are offered to the gods, is designated as a Kanagawa Prefectural Folk Cultural Property. Kawasaki City is a fascinating city full of unique landscapes where history, rich nature, and advanced industrial areas coexist. Please visit this wonderful city and experience it all.

Visited Shibamata for the first time over the weekend. I'd been meaning to go for a while because it seemed like an interesting place to visit in Tokyo, but I just hadn't had the chance until now. It was a really nice place and I was surprised at how few people were there. There was a ton of shops lined up along the main street and the wooden buildings gave it a really nice atmosphere. I haven't seen Otoko wa Tsurai yo, but there were statues and posters of Tora-san everywhere, even inside shops and stuff. I guess I'll have to watch it some time when I have the chance. We ended up eating lunch at one of the restaurants along the main road and they had some Tora Miso Ramen so we decided to try it. It was pretty good and had a decent amount of vegetables in it as well, so moderately healthy for ramen I suppose. We also got some dessert at a cafe afterwards and she got some dango while I ordered an ice cream float. We also went to the nearby temple Shibamata Taishakuten (柴又帝釈天), or Daikyoji Temple and walked around the main temple grounds and also bought tickets to see the garden and the architecture inside the temple. The garden was really pretty and the walkway around it was quite nice to walk on. I really enjoyed viewing the inside of the temple as there was a ton of hand-carved panels depicting different scenes. There were descriptions below each of the panels that described them as well, and they were interesting to read. It seemed like they were all carved by different people but they were all highly skilled. When we were leaving we found a nice little shows style candy shop and we bought some snacks and played a round of pinball on one of the pinball machines inside the shop. Haven’t played pinball since I was a kid, was pretty nostalgic. If you're in Tokyo I definitely recommend giving this place a visit on the weekend.

[English/Japanese] In this issue, I will continue to introduce some of the things that were popular in Japan this year. 1)Showa/Heisei Retro Boom This year, things that were popular in the Showa (1926-1989) and Heisei (1989-2019) eras are booming again. Mainly, old townscapes and tableware from the 1960s, characters and accessories that were popular in the 1980s and 1990s became popular among the younger generation as "new things. For the young generation that has had digital things since birth, they feel that retro things are incomplete and warm. An amusement park in Saitama Prefecture reopened this year, recreating the streets of the 1960s, and it is bustling with visitors every day. You may feel as if you have gone back in time. 2) Oatmeal Oatmeal sales have boomed this year, even doubling from the previous year. The reason seems to be that more and more people are eating at home due to the new coronavirus, and easy and healthy meals have become more preferred. Japanese people are famous for their culture of eating rice, but recently more and more people are eating staple foods other than rice, such as oatmeal and bread. Rice takes a long time to cook after it is washed. Busy Japanese may have come to prefer something more easily eaten. 3) Imperial Family News This year, the Emperor's niece got married, and various news during the engagement period were broadcasted on TV every day. News about the Imperial Family mainly interests the older generation, but the news about the marriage attracted the interest of various age groups. Did you find out what was popular this year? At our school, we sometimes have students research and present what is popular in the classroom. It's a great way to learn more about Japanese culture. This time, as in the previous article, we will introduce some of the things that were popular in this Japan. (1) Showa-Heisei retro boom This year, what was popular in Showa (1926 ~ 1989) and Heisei (1989 ~ 2019) has re-boomed. Mainly, old townscapes and tableware from the 1960s, characters and accessories that were popular in the 1980s ~ 1990s became popular among the younger generation as "new things". For the younger generation, who have been digital since birth, they feel that retro things are incomplete and warm. An amusement park in Saitama Prefecture was reopened this year, but it reproduces the cityscape of the 1960s and is crowded every day. You may be able to experience going back in time. (2) Oatmeal This year, there was such a boom that sales of oatmeal doubled from the previous year. The reason seems to be that more people are eating at home due to the influence of the new coronavirus, and easy and healthy eating has become more preferred. Japan people are famous for their culture of eating rice, but recently the number of people who eat staple foods other than rice, such as oatmeal and bread, has increased. It takes a long time for rice to be cooked after washing. Maybe Japan busy people have come to prefer things that are easier to eat. (3) Imperial Family News This year, His Majesty the Emperor's niece got married, and various news during the engagement period was broadcast on TV almost every day. While the news of the imperial family is mainly of interest to older people, the news about this marriage attracted the attention of various age groups. Did you see what was popular this year? At our school, students may research and present what is popular in class. You can learn more about Japan culture.
