Along the Shinkansen tracks

 I decided to walk into Kasuga, the next town to the east. To get there I have to walk along and then under the Shinkansen tracks. There are two bridges and two sets of tracks in this picture because the nearer one goes to our local station HakataMinami and the repair and storage yards and the one in the distance is the Shinkansen tracks that go to the southern part of Kyushu.
 Passing under the second bridge, I could see some of Kasuga. There is a mixture of homes and small businesses.
I turned to the left and walked along a road that parallels the Shinkansen tracks. Here it is mostly homes with only a very few businesses.
