In Japan, the number of trainspotters have increased, leading to them being called “Tetsu-chan” or “Tetsuko” (“tetsu” being derived from “tetsudou,” or railroad). Among Japanese transpotters, the railways especially treasured are those of JR Kyushu. This is a choice selection of trains that you might want to ride in order to examine the car body and the interior more closely.
There are numerous festivals held during Japanese Golden Week, which starts at the end of April to early May where there are consecutive national holidays in Japan. Hakata Dontaku Port Festival in Hakata-ku, Fukuoka City, which attracts more than 2 million visitors every year, is definitely worth visiting if you are in Japan during the Golden Week.
