Namiki-chuo Station platform

The Yokohama New Transit Seaside Line is a people mover in Yokohama’s Kanazawa Ward. It differs from traditional railways in a couple ways.  It doesn’t run on rails, it runs on a guideway with rubber tires.  Also, it has no driver.  It’s completely automated.

Yesterday, we went to Costco, which is near Namiki-chuo Station.  I took this picture on the platform, which is completely enclosed.

It’s mid-afternoon, so no big crowds yet.

Coming soon: Hamazushi

I love sushi.  It’s so delicious.  So, when a local Hanaya Yohei restaurant closed, I was happy to find out that it was being replaced by Hamazushi, which is owned by the same company.  Hamazushi is a kaitenzushi (or conveyor belt sushi) restaurant.  They are very cheap, only 105 yen each.  We often eat at Sushiro, but Hamazushi is closer to the station, so easy to go to on our way home if we walk.  It’s opening next month!  I can’t wait!
