April 14th, 2013. Only a few months left in Japan, Kevin and I decided it might be fun to do a little "backpacking" in Japan for a day. In other words, we walked from our dorms, to a train station about two or three miles away (maybe further, I can't remember) and took a train to Hachinohe before walking another several miles to the Mall.
This photo was at the beginning of that day. We found a set of train tracks that appeared to have fallen into disuse. Figuring it was the most surefire way to get to the train station without getting lost we hopped on and set off.
