I visited Aizu for a couple of days. I got a shiver down my spine when I first pulled into the station, but that quickly went when I realised it was like any other rural station.

Aizu is in a flat area between hills, so the station has nice views over the town from the bridges. It's a nice station from the outside, it's got a cool samurai theme going on to go with the towns history.

How does the Akita Nairiku line compare? I was planning on taking it sometime in early August next year.

>> No.17569452


There's a bunch of things to check out in Aizu. It was the site of the Battle of Aizu during the Meiji Restoration, one of the Shogunate's last stands.

I'd recommend Iimori-san and the Byakkotai graves, you can search for information on that, and the castle which is a reconstruction and now a museum. There's nice views from the old caste walls. There's a bus which will go around all the locations and cost 500 yen for the day. I could find and post the tourist maps they gave me.

Tadami-sen is incredible. I ended up going on a bad day, it was cold and rainy the whole time, but I'll never forget going through the valley on an empty train, seeing the mist rising from the forests. Amazing little stations all along the route and Kaneyama where the terminal station is is a surreal place. Perhaps that was more about the time I visited though.

It's tied with Watarase Keikoku-sen for best line though.

Japanese trains are more punctual than average, but stories like these are the exception. I saw 5 to 30 mins delays more than once while I was there, and nothing more than a generic loudspeak apology. Hell, I even had to wait 40 mins for a shinkansen once.

>> No.17597288

Yes. The city trains are extremely punctual but the country ones can be up to a few minutes late.
This is because they more often share lines and have to wait at a station for a train coming the other direction. Small delays like this would compound over the course of the day.

I will keep it up then, thanks. Due to file size, I will likely have to split it up into 6 months each without losing too much detail.

Sadly, I do not know how to do a proper time-lapse like the other anon; unlike him , I am a complete amateur at this. I merely manually take a screenshot every afternoon at 4.10pm-ish, crop it in MS paint and (when I have enough built up) stitch it all together in Windows Movie Maker, then covert it to webm in Webm For Bakas. I would like to make the webm less blurry and pixilated without losing the resolution or filesize but don't know how to do this.

>> No.17644618

That explains a lot. You will have to actually record video. Check the pastebin in the OP. It has some ffmpeg commands, but I can't promise you won't have to search online for extra knowledge. The only thing not written there that I can help you with is that you need ffmpeg + youtube-dl for youtube streams. The commands should be the same, but with youtube-dl in the front.

I don't know the ms model for the streaming solution but here is some speculation:
the direct link was ASF so it's likely to depend on the silverlight implementation that was packaged with whatever microshit software solution they were using

I'm rarely (maybe twice a month) on /jp/ but i always see a train station thread. I just have to ask, why are you guys watching train stations? Because it's comfy? If so, why this particular one?
Wanted to know this for a long time but always forgot to ask.

>Because it's comfy?
Pretty much.

Personally the reason I liked Aizu-Wakamatsu cam was the location. It was remote enough to not be constantly busy. Sometimes it would be packed and other times it would feel like it was almost empty. During the winter it would also occasionally snow which was really comfy.

Unfortunately Aizu-Wakamatsu cam went down in March so we've been looking for others.

Days are passing and that gives me hope, but I still have to wait some months before I move to Japan again.

I think you might like this channel
Large collection of trains in their stations from across Japan. I'm sure if you search a bit more on Youtube you'd find more videos on stations by one of the very many anoraks in Japan.

Why you no post pic?

>> No.17906157

I can never tell correctly but I thought it was the afternoon in these pics. Then i saw the time posted.

>> No.17906176

The time in the screenshot name is the local time of the person taken the screenshot.

>> No.17906196

Yeah I know, I was referring to the time posted which appears to be just a few seconds after the time of the screenshots.
