This is my first trip to further Japan alone. I packed my bag yesterday with a list. According to my plan, I get up at 4:05, then have a shower, and have breakfast. After the preparation, I start my journey at 4:45. I was worrying about missing the earliest train to Ueno. However, although I walked from my dorm to Kandatsu station, I got the station on time at 5:10. I got on the earliest train to Ueno at 5:16. It’s good time for sleeping when you don’t have enough sleep. I arrived at Ueno station at 6:27. And the train to Utsunomiya (宇都宮) would start at 6:53, which is a little different from the schedule because today is a day of weekend. I arrived at Utsunomiya at 8:19, but the train to Kuroiso will go at 8:21, so the transferring time is very short, I hurried to catch the train.
The first day trip is completely caught the time on schedule. I did not take a photo when I start my trip. However, I took a photo of a train when I arrived at Kuroiso (黒磯) station at 9:39 where I transferred the train to Koriyama (郡山).
Then I arrived at Aomori station (青森駅) at 21:10, and I ran to the platform where the night train to Sapporo stops so that I can line in the 1/3 head of the line at the first door of a free-seating car. There are many people waiting to get on the train.
However, there were some people not getting seats.
