This is the E7 leaving Omiya Station.
This is a E6/E5 combination Komachi/Hayabusa that was also leaving the station.
This was our E3 Tsubasa service that we rode to Yamagata.
This was our E3 Tsubasa at Yamagata.The E3 class is separated into two paint schemes for some inexplicable reason. The train that we rode was in the old, grey, green, light gray color scheme, but this was is in the fancier white, orange, purple scheme. Also, if you count the Toreiyu Tsubasa, that makes three different paint schemes.
Inside they had one of those pendulum things that hammered out a song every hour. This is that song.
This is a video that I made showing all the scenery on the line and the line between Yonezawa and Fukushima.
One thing I forgot to mention is that the scenery is some of the best I have seen from a shinkansen.
Next post will be about leaving Japan.
