From Ome to Okutama
I rode from Shinjuku station and came to Ome on the way!
My back was sore from sitting all the way…
And from here, I will be on the train for another 30 minutes…
I took the train bound for Okutama and headed for Shiromaru station, wondering which would come first, whether I would arrive at Shiromaru or my back would explode!
Getting off at Shiromaru Station
The station was completely in the mountains!
There was a big gap between Tachikawa and the crowded place where I was just an hour ago…
The station name markers and the station building were well maintained.
