Akita Kamotsu-eki

An overview of Akita Freight Depot, taken from the roof of the main office building. Matthew had gone to take photos of the depot (he's a little odd that way), and despite the near certainty it wouldn't work, decided to go into the office to see if he could get a tour of the facility.

To his surprise and delight, it actually worked - he got a personal guided tour of the whole place, from the overview from the roof to walking on the tracks to standing off to the side as a locomotive ran by, close enough to touch!
