Kyushu has experienced deadly flooding in the past week, leading to the closure of some railway lines. Thankfully not any I planned to take, but many lives have been impacted. 

It’s grey and wet here, a seasonal rain band crossing the southernmost of the big four islands. 

The interior of this train is dark too, more black than green.

The map shows the region I’ll be travelling in this afternoon. Lots of changing trains.

Have your say!
