  1. It's JR Tokai easy enough to confuse when its the same first Kanji for both :)
  2. Ah of course, didn't think of debris in fast flowing water striking the pier!
  3. Interesting, wonder why they did it though, the river doesn't look like it would be navigable so why not just build a pier in the river?

    Travelling to Amanohashidate on a JR Pass

    It may have changed since I did it, but i was able to book the seat to Amanohashidate and then pay the suppliment for the non-JR section onboard once the train entered the private railway direct to the conductor

    Photographic policies in Japan

    I agree with what everyone has said, never had any issues as long as you keep out of the way, and agree with bikuri bahn about other photographers, i find that they are always up for a conversation, they first start talking in English and I usually surprise them by answering them in Japanese, the look on their faces is priceless!
