Shizutetsu No. 1 by rlkitterman
Shizutetsu No. 1
The first locomotive of the Shizuoka Railway (Shizutetsu) was an 0-4-0 saddletank engine imported from Baldwin (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA).  Shizutetsu No. 1 is shown in this picture around 1908, with coach No. 1 and the train crew.  Within twenty years or so, the short Shizuoka-Shimizu railway would be electrified, and steam locomotive No. 1 would be scrapped.  This picture is on display at the Verkehr (Shimizu Port Terminal) Museum.

Toward the Southern Alps by rlkitterman
Toward the Southern Alps
I leaned out the window and took this picture of the scenery along the Oi River as the Oigawa Railway Kawane-ji steam train, pulled by Kawasaki 2-6-4 tank engine C11.190, made its way up from Shin-Kanaya toward Senzu in the foothills of the Southern Alps.

Shimizuko Line Freight Train by rlkitterman
Shimizuko Line Freight Train
No trains have run on the Shimizuko (Shimizu Port) Line since the railway was closed and dismantled in 1984.  However, the railway's history is commemorated in a few places along the old line, such as a park on the site of the former Miho railway station displaying a short freight train.  Diesel switcher DB152 is coupled to an alumina tank car, which would have been a typical consist for this mostly-industrial line.

Tokai Daigaku Maru Nisei by rlkitterman
Tokai Daigaku Maru Nisei
Tokai Daigaku Maru Nisei (2nd Tokai University Ship) is a research ship formerly used by the Tokai University School of Marine Science.  After being replaced by Bosei Maru, the ship was put on display in front of the school's Miho (Shimizu, Shizuoka) campus, next to the Natural History Museum and the Museum of Marine Science and Technology.  It must have taken some effort to get the ship up on dry land; anyone ever seen Fitzcarraldo?

I had a lot of adventures in 2014, and am really glad I was able to move to Japan and see a part of the world I had never seen before.  I am really excited for 2015 and can't wait for what will happen this coming year.  Happy New Year everyone!

You're welcome!  I am teaching English here, and am having a pretty good time traveling around on weekends and adjusting to the lifestyle.

Oh that's fantastic! Are you fluent in Japanese? I just started taking a Japanese class in the fall coincidentally but I'm struggling pretty terribly with Kanji.
From your pictures it looks like you've been on some lovely trips :D that's some killer photography!

Thanks!  I think I've managed to get quite a few good shots.  At the moment, I am focusing on speaking Japanese.  I can use a few basic phrases/sentences, but have not yet become able to move up to more complex conversations.  I can also read a few of the kanji, and understand about half of the hiragana and katakana.  Would you like to see Japan some day?
