Just random stuff for my post of Matsuyama Station this time.
Had a light lunch there, before setting out for a walk to Dogo Onsen. Raimie had an Anpanman bun, of course.
No ticket machine to feed your tickets here, because you pass your ticket or get it stamped by the staff. One of the few stations in Japan that do this. One was over at Yufuin Station. Another was Bessho Onsen. Bessho Onsen station master (or rather mistress) is particularly interesting. Want to know more? Head over to my Bessho Onsen post to read about it.
He's done for the day and will be heading off home soon, I hope. ^^
The train he was driving, that's the Shiokaze Limited Express which we boarded from Matsuyama Station to get to Takamatsu. We got onboard at 5.37pm and arrived Takamatsu at 7.57pm. Not too late by any standard, but the restaurants at the station were close or closing and we weren't to keen about venturing out to look for food, feeling all famished at that time so we decided to get this at the nearby konbini and head straight to our hotel. Can't beat a konbini when one is famished and have no idea where the good restaurants are.
