From the window of Hakone at night

A large adult bites a car window into the car window so much that I think that it was since I was a child that I looked out of the train and looked at the scenery like this.

At Miyanoshita Station (Gorra Line) or Tonozawa Station (Hakone Yumoto Line), you can get off at home for about 10 minutes, so it's a great shooting time.

There were a lot of people taking a photo with a plaza of the hydrangea train and a hat of the clerk in front of the hydrangea, since the conductor and the clerk would be happy to press the camera shutter.

The in-car announcement of the humorous conductor who you can not hear elsewhere doubles the fun.
