春の五能線の旅、五所川原駅から鯵ヶ沢駅でも一泊、そして深浦駅でも接続を待つ間地元歩き、そして東八森で一泊し翌日あきた白神駅からリゾート白神にのる鉄道満喫旅。ほとんどずーっと海岸沿いを視界を遮るエリア少なく海を見ながら列車にゆられる癒しの旅です。人工的なものがほとんど目に入らない希少な路線列車ですね。 Almost nothing but the sea is confronting your eye when you take Gono Line from Kawabe St. to Akita St. We can enjoy beauty of nature taking local train in northern part of Japan.
