■ What is the charm of the starry sky in Isumi City that professional photographers will fall in love with?

In Isumi City, located in the southeastern part of Chiba Prefecture, a starry sky photographer, Meadow Study, who has photographed the starry sky in Japan for 20 years, fell in love with its beauty, and the wonderful starry sky is spreading to the extent that it can be moved. The reasons why Isumi's starry sky is fascinating are: (1) Since the east and south of Isumi City are the Pacific Ocean, you can see the heavenly river in summer and the diamonds in winter rising from the sea without being affected by light. What you can do, (2) Isumi has no high-ranking people around it, and you can often see low stars near the ground. (3) Isumi City, which has almost no snowfall in winter, which is suitable for starry sky observation, is different from other areas. You can enjoy beautiful stars safely and safely even in winter. ④ You can easily experience the beautiful starry sky under such favorable conditions at a distance of 70 minutes from Tokyo (using the limited express Wakashio). And so on.

■ Overview of Isumi Railway Co., Ltd.

The history of Isumi Railway goes back about 90 years. Initially planned in the Taisho era as a line connecting Osaka and Ohara via inland, it was named the "Ohara Line". On April 1, 1930, it opened between Ohara and Otaki, between Otaki and Somoto in 1933, and Kazusa-Nakano in 1934. It opened one after another. It continued to operate as the JNR Primitive Line until the JNR division and privatization, and was converted to the "Isumi Railway" in 1988. We have been faced with the crisis of discontinuing the railway several times, including during the JNR era, but we strongly hope that the local people will continue to live as a living vehicle, and we have received warm support from many railroad fans. By doing so, I will come back to Japan today. We plan various event trains and continue to take on new challenges every day.
