Series 381 trains, which are operated as limited express YAKUMO, will retire day by day within a few years.
Traveling with Panorama Green Car would be surely good memory for you.
There is only few time for us to watch, use and record series 381 trains - new type train series 273 will be coming 2024 spring!
I calculated and compared a distance between Okayama and Izumoshi, Bitchu-Takahashi and Izumoshi.
Oh, the latter is within 200km. You could save green car extra fee because of cutting length of using green car.
At first, congratulation for finish the master’s course.
The word “Chukyo” means Japan’s Chukyo area, doesn’t it?
You continue to live in Japan.
In JR-Central area there are 5-lineup-Home Liner-trains, Home Liner Ogaki, Home Liner Numazu, Home Liner Shizuoka, Home Liner Hamamatsu and Home Liner Mizunami.
Home Liner Ogaki is a type of those 5-lineup-Home Liner-trains.
Home Liner Ogaki is operated by JR-Central, and it’s also operated in only JR-Central area.
But it has a characteristic point – using series 681 trains, owned by JR-West.
If number of users of Home Liner Ogaki is a little, Home Liner Ogaki trains may be vanished.
I wish that whether they are crowded as same as Chukyo area cities.
First, I apologize for a delay of replying to your message.
Maybe, is it taken at Kyoto Station?
These days, JR-East and JR-West are aggressive for closing Tickets Offices.
In addition to that activities, at stations where a Ticket Office is placed, they strive to guide passengers to ticket vending machines.
On the other hand, in area of JR-Central, fundamentally at stations where station staffs working have Ticket Offices.
Nowadays JR-Central close Ticket Offices sometimes but the pace of closing Ticket Offices is slower than JR-East and JR-West.
After closing other JR companies' Ticket Offices, when passengers who want to use Ticket Offices purchase train tickets at JR-Central's Ticket Offices, JR-Central can get sales commissions.
So, for JR-Central, passengers who use Ticket Offices are maybe thankful extensives.
