Hakone is one of Japan's most famous and popular tourist spots. Hot spring baths, views of Mt. Fuji, and more.With the Hakone Freepass, ride the Odakyu Line from Shinjuku, Tokyo directly to Hakone-Yumoto. Take the Hakone Tozan Railway train to Gora. Ride the Hakone Tozan Cable Car up the slope to to Sounzan. Then take the Hakone Ropeway high above to Lake Ashi for a cruise on a pirate boat to Hakone-machi Port or Moto-Hakone. Dramatic views of Mt. Fuji. Photo: Odakyu Line's Romance Car at Shinjuku Station.
ha501-20151104_9154.jpg
Sold by the Odakyu Line, the Hakone Freepass is a great deal for people coming from Tokyo on the Odakyu Line.I got the two-day pass (¥5,140) which covers roundtrip express train (Romance Car) fare from Tokyo to Hakone and covers the trains, buses, and ropeway in the Hakone area. Hakone is a great getaway for Tokyoites. It's possible to see most everything on a day trip to Hakone, but an overnight stay gives you more time to see more.

Limited Express tickets are sold on the train platform if you haven't bought it yet. Making advance reservations is recommended though.

Higashi-Yamato Minami Park is a large park with greenery and sports facilities. One interesting edifice is the former Hitachi Aircraft Transformer Substation pockmarked with bullet holes from World War II. The park was formerly the US Air Force's Yamato Air Station. Before that from 1938 and during World War II, it was the site of a military aircraft engine factory. Near Tamagawa Josui Station on the Seibu Haijima Line.

On Nov. 19, 2013, I took a friend around Tokyo and when we headed for the Imperial Palace, we saw this large crowd on the streets. Most were middle-aged and older people. The palace was closed off to tourists as well. Couldn’t see the famous Nijubashi Bridge.
im501-P1030234.jpg
I asked a bystander what was going on. She said they were waiting for “Caroline.” No mention of the last name. “Caroline” in Japan automatically means “Kennedy.”Although I always think of Neil Diamond’s song which coincidentally is about the Caroline they were waiting to see.
im502-DSC00018.jpg
So I stuck around for about 15 min. and sure enough, at around 4 pm, her horse-drawn carriage appeared after she had shown her credentials to the emperor. I whipped out my camcorder and still camera and started shooting.
im503-DSC00020.jpg
There were two horse-drawn carriages and I correctly assumed she was riding in the first one. No one waved Japanese and American flags though.
im504-DSC00021.jpg
Fortunately, she was sitting on the right side of the carriage facing my side of the street. You can see her in this photo. Wish she waved to us. As soon as she passed, the crowd dissipated.We haven’t had such a star ambassador to Japan in a long time, not perhaps since Edwin Reischauer in 1960s or the beloved Mike Mansfield in the 1980s. Welcome to Japan, Sweet Caroline!

The same type of happi coat the Beatles wore when they got off the JAL DC-8 ("Matsushima") at Haneda for their Budokan concerts in 1966.The back has the kanji for kotobuki (寿) meaning "celebration." Famous story behind how a JAL stewardess got John to wear the happi coat. "Wearing a happi coat when you land in Japan would make the fans really happy!" "Good idea!," said John who then wore it. The other Beatles followed and wore one too. A major, historic PR coup for JAL.

Photography was permitted, but no videos. You can post photos online, but cannot show personnel (I assume faces) and the other tour participants. Also cannot show any plane from another airline which might be taxiing or flying outside in the background.
ja253-20160512_8350.jpg
The lucky treat of the JAL tour was seeing Japan's Air Force One (actually, Air Force Two). The Japanese government plane that carries the prime minister or emperor.They are normally parked at Chitose Airport in Hokkaido. Flown by the Air Defense Force, but maintained by JAL. Japan's Air Force One/Two will be retired in 2019, to be replaced by Boeing 777. The new Boeing 777 will be maintained by ANA. Photos were allowed, but not allowed to be posted online.
ja254-20160512_8355.jpg
One corner of the hangar preserved the cockpit/lounge section of the JAL "Fuji" DC-8. This was Japan's first passenger jet put into service in 1960, replacing prop planes. This plane had 104 seats, 36 first class and 68 tourist class.

JAL plane parked outside the maintenance hangar.JAL sent out an online questionaire afterward for feedback about the tour. I told them that many foreigners were also interested in the tours so they should provide foreign language info too. I'm told that there are no tours like this in the States.

Maibara Station is a major transfer point for the Tokaido Line, Hokuriku Line, and shinkansen bullet train. From this station, you can go on to Kyoto (or Tokyo in the east) in the west or to Fukui, Kanazawa, and Toyama up north.

Next to Maibara Station's east exit is the Ohmi Railways Station. Otherwise, there's nothing much on the east side. For a shinkansen station, Maibara is pretty lonely.

Oyako (Parent-child) photo exhibition by Bruce Osborn held at Maibara Station's corridor from July 2011 to March 2012. The large window wall is now covered with his portraits.
ms401-20110801_3720.jpg
The city of Maibara has pursued a slogan of stressing "Kizuna" or human bonds. Bruce's longtime oyako project fits in well and he was invited to exhibit his parent-child photos in Maibara Station.
ms402-20110801_3721.jpg
About the exhibition. Architecturally, Maibara Station has nothing to boast about. But at least it now has something pretty.
ms403-20110801_3722.jpg
Bruce is a pro photographer based in Hayama, Kanagawa Prefecture. He has been taking celebrity parent-child portraits and publishing them in Mainichi Shimbun.
