River boats were the backbone of commerce in Japan, from ancient times until the advent of rail. A few are still in use in the tourist trade. The ride between the town of Kameoka and Arashiyama, on the west edge of Kyoto is particularly beautiful in the autumn, but breathtaking at any time of year. The trip is called Hozugawa Kudari (保津川下り) in Japanese, which means something like “(Going) Down the Hozu River”.
The ride covers a course of 16 kilometers and requires approximately 2 hours, depending on the volume of water flowing in the river at the time. There are two rail lines that pass between the two points. The modern electric line passes almost entirely through tunnels, emerging into daylight only briefly as it passes over bridges. The older line travels mostly alongside the river. The diesel powered train that runs this course is purely for sightseeing.
This post contains videos of the trip and a Google Earth tour, with music.

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.
