Thank you so much Lee san for the video!

The newest episode is interesting, but there are going to be major changes coming in the Kansai region airport train service within the next few years. They're already started construction work at the former Umeda Freight Terminal for a new underground station right next to the current JR West Osaka Station (accessible by walkway), which will allow the Haruka airport limited express train to add a new stop so passengers riding Haruka can now walk to the hotels surrounding Osaka Station.

I think they should have called it the Sarah Macdonald Show this week... poor Russell and Ryo hardly got a look in.

LOL! Poor old Narita Express didn't get much more of a look in either.

 

As always Lee, thanks for taking the time to record and upload this episode. Much appreciated.

You're welcome.

 

I should just add something to those people who take the time to offer thanks. You probably notice that I'm not very good at hitting the "Like This" button... it's not because I dislike the comments, I'm just generally not very good with the whole internet Like/Dislike thing.

 

I also don't really come on the site unless I am uploading something and trust me, that's a good thing for everyone else. I tend to achieve Pariah status on most forums I go on, so me being quiet on here ensures that I can carry on uploading and sharing... which is the important thing.

Which services/routes are planned to stop at the new station besides the airport express?

I believe the Kuroshio limited express will also use this station.

Prepaid E-money Cards: The Smart Way to Travel in Japan

 

15 million people commute in and out of Tokyo every day, and most of them now use prepaid e-money cards. Because one card can be recognized by multiple transport companies, the system has streamlined automated fare collection. A card's IC chip has an e-wallet function, and can store information such as boarding section and expiration dates on monthly passes; all of which can be verified in just 0.2 seconds. See how these cards and the technology behind them have transformed rail travel in Japan.

Damn, sorry everyone... only just realised after Ronny sent me an email that I had recorded a show last week. :( This is another one of those stressed out times of the with what should be a wedding anniversary but instead is an anniversary of when I scattered my wife's ashes after she died. :(

 

I have recorded last week's show, so don't worry, you haven't missed it, I'm just less with it that I usually am... I will get it uploaded asap.

It's okay, I would rather do last week's while I remember, just in case I forget this week's as well. It takes close to 45 minutes to do each episode, with the copying from my satellite to my PC, the conversion and then the upload, so one at a time means less time watching progress bars go by.

Thanks for the upload Lee.

 

And all my wishes of "healing"... I'm devastated just to think about what you must have gone through.
