Mizuma Railway Logo

EastOsaka-3, originally uploaded by sleepytako.

There is little I love more than faded paint on concrete bricks. What a great logo too. Mizuma Railway (水間鉄道 short name, Suitetsu) is a short single line local railway that runs down the center of Kaizuka city in Osaka prefecture. Misuma means in, or between the water. Water (水) is one of my favorite kanji so it's no wonder I loved riding this line. Also, the trains have conductors who check and punch your tickets--something quite rare in the cities. It's a great ride and the last station is a 10 minute walk from Mizuma temple and offers some other great walking courses.
