Work summary

Omiya has developed a railway network and serves as the gateway connecting Tokyo and the northern Kanto, Tohoku, Shinetsu, and Hokuriku regions. Aboard the railroad vehicles that supported modernization and people's lives in Japan, the audience was on their way to the "Ginga Tetsudo (Galactic railroad)". Omiya is connected to Tohoku and Iwate whichi is hometown of Kenji Miyazawa, by rail. We witness what is "hontouno saiwai".
