I was living in Iwate up in Tohoku from 2010 to 2013. From that far north and where I was out on the coast, even domestic travel meant a trek of distance and money. However I was never sorry to ride the shinkansen when I had the chance and the excuse. I remember this image coming into my mind as I sketched in Tokyo station waiting for my transfer from the Tokaido to the Tohoku shinkansen returning from travels to West Japan.

Watercolor, ink, on watercolor paper.
