Enjoy delicious sake and a fantastic bento, while riding inside a Roman-Go train carriage!

"Heichiku Masuzake Ressha 2015" was organized by the Heisei Chikuho Railway. Making the round trip from Tagawa-Ita Station to Nogata Station on the temporary train service, Heichiku Roman-Go (retro style train carriage), this was an occasion to drink as much delicious sake as you like and enjoy a fantastic, limited edition "Chikumaru Bento," which is made using local ingredients that are sourced from locations that can be found along the railway line.

We got onto the small one-carriage train and took our seats straight away. We were given our sake in sweet little "masu (wooden box-shaped containers)." We all quickly downed the Japanese sake, which was soft and smooth in the throat, with a rich, thick aroma that spread through your mouth. It was so tasty!

After our sake we had our "eki-ben (train journey lunch boxes)." This was the first time that I had tried an eki-ben, but learning that they are often made from local ingredients from locations around the train stations at which they are sold, I felt that this distinctive type of bento is a really charming aspect of Japanese culture. The "Chikamaru Bento" that we were served on this trip was made from a lot of ingredients that are hallmarks of the area. Taking in the scenery outside as we rode along, I really got a feel for the area as I ate my bento and made the most of the atmosphere of this fun-filled journey,

After arriving at Tagawa-Ita Station we got the chance to enjoy some Tagawa Hormone (beef and pork offal) Nabe. We have hormone in Korea, but it has a very specific smell so I didn't eat it too much, but since I came to Fukuoka I have been really impressed by the taste of motsu nabe and now I just love it! The Tagawa Hormone Nabe that we ate at the station was so delicious!
