I wish I could pinpoint it properly.
I think I was on the Muroran line, northbound. It was a local train, like 1 or maybe
2 cars. It travelled slowly. It was summer, it was warm, the windows were open, there was a gentle breeze coming through, we rolled at a placid pace. The electric fans in the corners of the car sat idle and dusty.
At one stop, a lady and like 4 or 5 little kids came aboard, maybe kindergarten age. At the next stop, a big huge fluffy bumble bee came aboard too, in through the window. I was TERRIFIED. It landed on the arm of the lady, one of the kids noticed and said something gently, and then a little girl much braver than me softly scooped up the bee, clambered on a seat, and reached up to the window to let the bee out.
The interior was cream and maroon i think.
That's my favourite train, sushi, that one in my memory. Maybe it was a KiHa 40 series.
What's your favourite style of hat?
