Colin Boocock presents “ The Japanese way”
This digital slide show covers a wide range of railway journeys and tourist visits in Japan. Although this tour was in the very wet summer of 2009, most of what was experienced then is much the same today. Some traditional heritage tourist spots are included together with many modern towns and cities. The show includes journeys on ordinary trains and heritage steam trains, and illustrates the surprising variety that exists among the so-called ‘bullet trains’. It also shows how close the tour party got to Mount Fuji without actually seeing it! In many ways, the Japanese way of doing things is different from those in the UK, but in others very similar.
As this meeting is held online, members are able to provide their favourite refreshments in the comfort of their own home.
