A TOKYU TRAIN IN NAGANO


Changing trains at Ueda Station. This hot spring-bound train of Ueda Dentetsu (Electric Railway) looks somewhat familiar because the cars were once used on Tokyu Toyoko (including Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line), Ikegami, and Tamagawa Lines. Ueda Dentetsu is a local railway company that has one single-track route and is a part of Tokyu Group.
上田駅で乗り換え。この上田電鉄の温泉地行き電車は、かつて東急東横線(地下鉄日比谷線を含む)、池上線、多摩川線で使われていた。だからなんとなく見覚えがある。上田電鉄は単線の一路線のみを持つ地元の鉄道会社で、東急グループの一員。

Crossing the Chikuma River, the longest river in Japan, which is also known as the Shinano River...
信濃川という名でも知られる日本一長い川、千曲川を渡って・・・


...then arriving at the final stop—Bessho Onsen. Unfortunately, I don't have a plan to take a hot spring here today.
終着駅の別所温泉に到着。残念ながら今日ここでは温泉に入らない。
