Akita city is a capital city at Akita prefecture. Akita city has castles. Sensyu park is just in front of Akita station. Around Akita castle and other main streets, some old woman sell ice creams. They make instant shop around castle at summer. You can see several shop around it. A special thing is a shape of ice cream like as following photo. A women makes this shape of ice cream in front of you. This shape is rose flower. Pink color is strawberry flavor taste and yellow one is banana flavor taste. Actually this taste is not as such natural one. In my image, it taste is soda flavor taste. But I did not feel bad when I took it. Actually, basically, I do not like banana taste of foods. But I did not make image of banana when I ate it. So, I can repeat to buy this ice cream. This taste is good for hot summer. As I wrote, we can buy it around city from old woman, but i found it in convenience store. I did not have any hesitation to buy it or not when I found it. Sure, I got one.
Several weeks ago, I found a history of rail line museum around Shinbashi station. I usually walk around that point on weekend. However, I walked 2nd floor at that point. And I did not know about a museum on 1st floor. Our weekend walking is changed from distance oriented to unknown load finding. We just enter a small street and then that small street connected new world. Shinbashi is an important area for rail line in Japan. Because, Shinbashi started a history of japanese business rail line. The betting of business rail line started from shinbashi to yokohama at 1872. 9 trains on every day were operated at that time. It was needed 53 minutes for one way (it is needed 20 - 26 minutes, now). Average passengers were 4300 people per day. Bothe Terminal stations on that line required many functions, so both stations were not only passenger line station but also transportation base. A function of main terminal of passenger station moved from Shinbashi station to Tokyo station 1914.
