After the rain had stopped, I walked along the narrow roads of the mountain village. (From Chihayaguchi to Mika no Dai – first half)

Take the Nankai Koya Line from Namba Station to Chihayaguchi Station, about 40 minutes on board

The weather was fine yesterday, but due to the rain the day before, the trains were interrupted and we couldn’t go.
Today, I finally walked from Chihayaguchi Station to Mikanodai Station. This video is the first half of it.

I walked down a narrow road in a rural village. It is dotted with private houses and paddy fields.
There are almost no cars, and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.
The paddy fields are almost ready for planting, and the rice fields are marked with water. Rice planting is expected to begin in early June.

According to a woman in the neighborhood, when a train passes by the water, the image of the train is reflected on the surface of the water. In order to capture that moment, Mr. Toritetsu often comes at this time of year.
Right after I heard that story, a train came and I took a picture of it too.
That video is really nice.

I found a loquat fruit. It’s still blue and small.
Seeing this fruit reminds me of my hometown.
