I've walked this trail twice. It's has beautiful scenery, and the tunnels are a lot of fun with a flashlight. It's good that going there won't be trespassing anymore, strictly speaking.

今週、ロサンゼルスで新しい鉄道延長が開催した。日本語のニュースをあまり探せないが、新しい車両が日本製(近畿車輛)。

On Thursday, I took a hike up to the top of Kabutoyama, in Nishinomiya. From Kanno Temple at the base of the mountain, it's a good 30 minute climb up some fairly big switch-backing steps. The top of the mountain is shrouded by trees and thus offers no views, but a viewing platform from the aforementioned temple offers a sweeping view of Osaka to the east.

The park can be reached by bus from Hanshin Nishinomiya Station for a fare of 220 yen. From the north side of the station's Ebisuguchi exit, take Hanshin Bus Juurin-ji Loop Line east direction (鷲林寺線 東回り) and get off at Kenritsu Kabutoyama Moribayashi Koen Mae (県立甲山森林公園前). Alternatively, the park can be reached from the Taishimichi (大師道) stop on the Hanshin Bus Yamate Loop (山手線), which is a more frequent route, but the park is a fifteen minute walk uphill from the stop.

In Himeji today, only had time for one crude photo of the castle with blossoms.
