Odawara Toy Railway

Posted in Places by tokyobling on December 18, 2011

Time for another summer memory, this one from Odawara and my trip there in August. Behind Odawara Castle, there’s a small park on a hill and around that hill there’s a miniature, toy railway, complete with a miniature train and mini rail crossings. It must be a treat for the kids to ride on this train, and I saw quite a few fathers with big smiles as well. It is surprisingly long for a toy railway and if you’re ever in Odawara with small kids it is a must visit! The day I spent in Odawara was blazing hot with clear blue skies and a sun that almost knocked me out. But I miss summer already!

    Que agradable ver tan hermosas imágenes!. Fuentes de esparcimiento para recrear las miradas en la naturaleza en contacto con los seres humanos. Los servicios son elegibles (en este caso el tren) a la hora de hacer del turismo un mecanismo de diversión y aprendizaje.

    Reminds me of summer trips with E to Junction Valley Railroad, though it is set up with diesel engines.

    (That was back in the Railway Mania period.)

      Every kid deserves a railway mania period! (^-^) These might be diesel too, it didn’t look very electric to me… (^-^;)

    I like that children enjoy simple things. They are so right in that intuition. I think I would have loved the train too as a little one, I think I would enjoy it as an adult too.

      Me too! It’s funny how they spend a lot of time on trains already and still want to go visit this train! (^-^)
