My Trip to Japan, August 2000


Nagoya Castle

Nagoya Castle was virtually burned to the ground during a World War II
air raid. It was restored to the current form in 1959. The interior of the
castle is a bit too modernized for my taste, with modern staircases and
elevators. I chose to workout by using the stairs to the top floor & back.

Limited Express Fujikawa at Kofu Station

JR Minobu Line goes between cities of Kofu on north and Fuji on south and
connects JR Chuo and Tokaido Lines. We took the Limited Express Fujikawa
which runs on the Minobu Line, to try to enjoy a view of Mount Fuji from the
west side, but couldn't see its peak because of overcast weather that day.
