@TowerDude & 7891122562059523: thank you! the main goal of this CJ is to be as realistic as possible!
@Adrianor: you're right! in the last mosaic I removed it only in one of the two city.
Passed Inoue District we follow Saito Line through the suburbs towards its terminus at Saito City.
Despite the common image of dense skyscrapers suburbs like this one are very common in Hirohashi.
Kaneda was once a village on the eastern shore of the river estuary but with the population grow of the last twenty years it become a suburban town fully merged with Hirohashi.
Saito Line trains stop at Matsu Jinja Station near a golf driving range that now is desert due to the heavy rain.
Kaneda High School is the main school of the town, due to Kaneda Koukou Station just in front of the school many students come here from the neighbor Inoue District of Hirohashi.
And here's the very center of the town: this shopping area just outside Kaneda Station. most of the inabitants moves every day to Hirohashi for work and stop here to shop on their way back home.
But Kaneda Town isn't only a place full of commuters, it also host a fishing harbour: fishing is an important economic activity in Hirohashi. Sea of Japan is very rich of mackerels, sardines, herrings, salmon and squid.
Matsu Jinja is a shinto shrine on the mountain behind Kaneda Town.
Mountains of Saito Peninsula are covered with forests and sometimes you can find temples and shrine. Despite the ancient aspect temples like this one were built mostly in the last century.
Continuing south past the center of the town houses are more scattered, there are rice fields and the landscape begins to be more rural.
Both the road that the railway continues to the south surrounded by forest, sometimes small groups of houses are situated along them.
this type of landscape becomes common in Hanazawa Rural Community that we will see in the next entry.
Finally a picture of the whole Kaneda Town, in the north(left of the picture) there is no a clear border with the Inoue District of Hirohashi City.
