Yagi-Shingu Line #168

This September I had the opportunity to ride Japan's longest bus line. 
The Yagi-Shingu Line #168 is a great adventure for anyone living or traveling around Japan. Check out the guide I made for it below.

Welcome 2014!

Here's wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!
I hope 2014 will be a great one for all of us.

This year is a great one for me because on the page for Saturday, January 4th in the 365 Himekuri JR Tetsudo Calendar 2014 my photo is featured! I hope I can get one into next year's calendar too!

In 2013 Mia turned 3 and celebrated her 753 ceremony.

We were able to travel many places this last year.

As a family we went to Nagasaki 

and America.

My brother came to visit.

I was able to ride the Bantan Line in eastern Hyogo.

I rode the Yagi-Shingu bus line in Nara and Wakayama prefectures.

Lastly, I visited Tohoku from December 26th and was able to visit Sendai, Matsushima, Akita, Yokote, Fukushima, and Toyama on a crazy roundabout train trip I'm still aching from.

Sadly in 2013 our family friends closed their amazing okonomiyaki restaurant Tonbo here in Nishinomiya. お疲れ様田村さん!

Goodbye 2013, hello 2014.
