Fukushima Station and Shinkansen Tracks at Twilight 福島駅と新幹線

This is of Fukushima Station viewed from up on Mt. Shinobu. I sat and watched the city during the short period of time after the light switch for the city had been flipped on but before the the sun fully dipped below the horizon.

 

Running from south (top of photo) to north (bottom of photo), the Tohoku Shinkansen connects Tokyo with the northeastern part of Honshu island, running all the way up to Aomori Prefecture. Fukushima Station's importance lies in that it's where the Yamagata Shinkansen (bottom right) splits off from the Tohoku Shinkansen and heads off on its own.
