It’s sad when accidents happen. Especially ones that may have been prevented (or so it sounds). I just got back from Japan saturday night. While there I took the trains in and around Kyoto and Osaka. They did seem to be a great way to get around.
I’m just glad that my brother and his wife were already home in the north before this accident happened. I wouldn’t want to think they were on that train – bad enough hearing about earthquakes in their region every so often.
