thoughts of kansai

There was a terrible train accident today in Japan - a commuter train jumped the tracks and rammed into an apartment building. Initial reports say that 57 people were killed and over 400 people were injured. It's the worst accident in over 40 years.

I used to commute everday on that train line when I was in Japan.

As my crude drawing shows, Amagasaki, the place where the accident happened, is a pretty major hub for the trains that run between Kobe and Osaka. I hope everyone I know is alright.


heard about it on bloomberg. they said that like 600 people rode the train. thank god it wasn't more severe.
