In this overview you can see the two area that will be shown now.

The second one is slightly smaller.

Later on, the government bought theses two houses' lands because of the growing apartment demand in the region.

Elevate me Later

As a lot of people asked for this, and I must say I do agree with everyone, the rail line has been elevated! Today's update will focus on the works of elevating the railway.

The update is named http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DF7wInjEGuc.

crossingbefore.jpg

Here is a shot of the crossing where the railway was the problem, and not the pedestrian overpass. :rofl:

Now the same shot during the works.

Finally, a night view of the finalized area. As you can see, it is much more pleasant and no more congestion is made of that crossing.

Now lets move to the curvy part.

Now, the railway takes much less place so that the regional government decide to build.... more apartment complex.

So moving on to the update. Today we are going to see a new part of a city I showed some pages ago -- page 62 to be precise -- , that town is nothing else than the Etajima island. yeap the island is a city itself.

So lets start the update with a tiny mosaic.

The telecommunication antenna overlooking the city from its hill called " Telegraph hill ". It is also the same hill as the bridge rapid road.

Hello everyone, and welcome to the new update! :ohyes:

Okay, today is a small update about a town at the north of the region. The town is called " Nagano " and is directly located next to a Highway and Shinkansen line ( high Speed rail )... However, it's still the Series 0 that are used since 1985 on this line. :golly:

An overview of the area, the suburban part of Hiroshima, in Kawanuma.

Zoom on the main strip which has lots of jobs. The tall building with the brown staircase is known as the home of the 765 pro, an Idol company

a very nice close up of the temple on top of the hill. The observation deck is very well known and gives a nice panorama of Hiroshima city center.

Here you can see the famous bridge that crosses the river. It is one of the two ways to cross it at this point. The other one is a tunnel recently opened a little further south of here.

I hope you enjoyed this update!

hello everyone, and welcome to my newest CJ! :golly:

After a big break from updating at ST ( I didn't had time to update 3 forums at a time) I decided to finally continue to share my works with the ST community.

My new region is loosely based on the city of Hiroshima and its surroundings. here's a link to my thread at SC4D.

So, lets move on the first real update here at ST. To be honest, this update is a brief summary of all the previous interesting updates posted at SC4D. ^_^

In my MD CJ you'll be able to travel from Rural japan :
