Miniature Train Rides in Kitashinagawa

Posted in Places by tokyobling on December 12, 2014

If you ever want to try ride the smallest Shinkansen train in the world just head over to the Kitashinagawa Shukumatsuri in autumn every year. I saw these two very happy looking volunteers taking the local kids out for a spin on a train line that must have been at least one hundred meters long, Shinkansen in one end and small steam engine looking train in the other. I felt a little bit weird stepping over the track to avoid the train as it came hurtling towards me at almost 6 km/h, but the siren sounded almost as fierce as on a normal sized train!

      There were quite a few adults, but I think you needed a child to get on the ride…! (^-^;)
