From Takasaki, we went back in time and caught at steam engine/diesel engine train to Yokokawa. The front end was diesel and the back end was the steam engine, sort of a "pull me, push you".

life. When the maids ...
The ink workshop we had was very interesting. We had to paint Mount Fuji along with the master. The placement of the marks was very important with the ink. You were not trying to make long flowing beautiful lines. Instead the rougher they appeared the better. Thankfully we had practice paper.
