We went to the train station about 20 minutes early. We had to get some lunch for the long trip to Aomori. We will transfer to another train to go to Hakodate in Hokkaido. The sky was still blue when we walked to the station but for those who left it just a few minutes later, the heavens had opened up. Takako was a bit drenched when she arrived.

The train from Kanita to Hakodate takes you under the Tsugaru Strait ( the bit of water between the island of Honshu and the island of Hokkaido)
So for all you people with a statistical bent:
the tunnel is 53.85 km long. It is underground on the Honsu side for 13.55 km, then under the strait for 23.3 km, then underground on the Hokkaido side for 17km.
At the deepest point it is 240 meters deep ( the sea is 140 meters deep and ...
