I left Kanto Plain in the early morning today. Getting on a train, I headed north.
Terrain was becoming mountainous as the train moved north towards the end of Kanto Plain.
The platform was thinly covered with snow. As the train went north, snow depth increased.
Having got through some long tunnels, the train was running in southern part of Niigata prefecture. This winter is warm, so there is not much snow on the ground and mountains.
My hometown is on the lower land of Niigata Plain. Thanks to the low altitude and the record-warm winter, there is no snow on the ground. This is just a rural town under the dark cloud of winter.
