The nighttime pictures look amazing!  Love the density and where the buildings of different heights are located -- very realistic.  The Miyashiro JCT is perfect, I didn't think that was possible.  Sweet entry :8)

Thank you!

3rd part of Update 24 Nakahara. yes I know its really a long time from the last update but whatever... that being said, this update was supposedly posted in late August instead of September...

Nakahara 24.5: "Summer Fever" (Miyashiro-cho, Akashima)

 

Summer, anything in mind about this season? for people in Akashima, Nakahara it might associate with hot but rather wet weather, beach, and maybe for students: Summer Holiday!

Residential area in Miyashiro-cho (宮代町), Nishi Ward, Akashima.

Yes but, summer almost ending here, fall/autumn will heading toward the city any moment in September as this city experienced the season change faster than most of Nakahara. But yet the summer atmosphere still can be seen in this city.

"It's very hot today. I think we should turn on the AC."
"No, this is just fine"
"Cmon, I cant concentrate if its hot like this..."

"Alright then, beside its your idea to do the summer homework here"
"Well umm yes but doing it near the end of Summer holiday definitely not a good idea anyway"

"I think its better to buy some cold drink."
"yeah thats a good idea, buy me some sports drink"
"and you please continue to figure how to solve this question while I buy it"

Anyway lets just left those students who working on their homework and heading to other topic.. Hmm maybe that guy in front of station might have something better?

"I think I spend too much in this summer. Going to sea cost me a lot duh.. and those stuffs... well atleast it pretty close with the salary payment day. OH WAIT, THE TRAIN ALREADY THERE, I NEED TO HURRY!"

"ah I made it... if I don't made it I'll late in this meeting... wait is this train AC working? why its really hot here?" (apparently the train AC cant handle the number of passenger and the temperature at that time)

lets go to other person, it seems that guy a little bit in hurry lol.... still in same train, there is some interesting guy, lets see what he thinking of.

Meanwhile in a park and even nearby the Miyashiro Shrine, some children can be seen hunting insect and bringing with them long-handled insect nets and clear plastic boxes with the insects they catch (mostly beetles, grasshoppers, cicadas, crickets, katydids). Seems they have fun in this summer time although the fact is the number of insects in big cities like Akashima continuously decreasing with the expansion of human habitation.

Another day in Amakusa-cho (天草町), area in Nishi ward, Akashima. Its a rather windy day today as it almost entering fall season.

Area in central of Amakusa-cho

For people who want to find a rather easy access apartment and close to city center, Amakusa-cho might be one of a good choice as it located inside the loop line (Kogame Line) of Akashima. 

35926956734_c43149c868_o.jpg

Higashi-Amakusa Intersection in eastern Amakusa-cho

Although it might not be a good idea if you dont want a quiet neighborhood. This area almost lively 24/7, partially because the presence of Akashima Expressway Chuo Line in the south of this area.

Nevertheless, there are a lot of available housing this area, as there are a lot of large apartment here,

This entry would be the first of 3 part of update 24. I got total 88 images for this update so I decide to post about 10-25 images per entry. this entry consist of 20 images that cover Imaizumi-cho (今泉町), Nishi Ward, Akashima and several night shot of previous update (which apparently I forgot to put any).

Shin-Akashima is a major city central in Nishi Ward. This area recently rapidly developed due to the opening of Tokai Shinkasen Shin-Akashima Station alongside with the Tokaido Main Line Shin-Akashima Station in 1979. The initial plan of Tokai Shinkansen was to put the station in the Akashima original city central, but instead it moved to Nishinarisawa-cho (which renamed Shin-Akashima-cho) in order to save money from land clearance and engineering design of the route as the route ends up in Arakawa instead of Akashima. As the link to the city center, people from Tokai Shinkansen can use Akashima Subway Kochisa Line or Tokaido Main Line from Shin-Akashima Station.

Neighboring area like Narisawa-cho also pretty much developed alongside with the presence of Shin-Akashima Station. Narisawa Station of Kirishin Line renamed into Higashi-Shinakashima Station in 1979. Although the distance of this station is about 500m from Shin-Akashima Station, it still pointed as a transfer point due to the presence of underground walkway toward Kochisa Line Station
