It was the first subway line to open in Nagoya City.
It crosses the city from east to west and is an important part of the city's transportation system. It is currently the most profitable public subway in Japan.

The name of the line was taken from the zoo located along the line. Although it is a subway, the three stations at the ends are elevated stations above ground.

The color of the train lines is yellow, but there is a mixture of trains that are entirely yellow and trains that are silver with yellow lines.

Nagoya has a well-developed underground shopping area, and various points of interest can be reached by walking underground, so it is said that "it is easier to understand going down underground than walking on the ground.

Some people even go underground when they lose their way.

This is also the route Dad used to take until he was in high school. On rainy days, he could take the subway from Kamisha to Hoshigaoka and then take a bus to the high school through the cemetery.

This line is famous as "the slowest line in Japan in terms of maximum speed.

There used to be a freight line that carried limestone, cement, and other materials, but it ceased operations in 2005. The city of
Kitakyushu thought it might be possible to reuse the line as a tourist resource. The result is this line.

This line is located in Kyushu. It is a short line with a length of 11 km and 10 stations. It is isolated, with no connections to other company-owned lines.

Originally, the line was built by a company called Hakata Wan Railway. It was taken over by the current operating company in 1942 during the war.

Therefore, the track width is slightly narrower at 1067mm. This is the only line of the same company that has different track widths.

All trains currently running on the line are 600 series. The trains are two-car trains all day long and run approximately every 10 to 15 minutes.

The line runs parallel to the JR Kagoshima Main Line. It is also characterized by the fact that it runs parallel to a freight line in the middle of the line.

On the JR Joetsu Line, there is a station where you have to dive the deepest tunnel in Japan to get down to the down platform.

The up platform is above ground, but the down platform is located deep in a tunnel under the ground. There is a height difference of 81 meters between the up platform and the down platform, and you have to climb down 462 steps. For this reason, this station is called "Japan's largest mole station.

Why did this station have to be built like this?

Originally, when the Joetsu Line was opened in 1931, it was a single track line that was used only as an up line. The station building is located at the entrance of the Shimizu Tunnel along the line.

When the line was converted to a double-track line in 1967, a new tunnel was dug for the down line, and it went much deeper underground. The downstairs platform was installed in the tunnel.

Therefore, it takes more than 10 minutes to get to the platform after passing through the ticket gate. There are benches in the middle of the stairs where you can take a rest.

There is also a lodge near the station where you can stay overnight on an experimental basis. It is gaining popularity because even beginners can easily experience camping.

This line runs from Ishikawa to Niigata prefectures and is operated under a third-sector system. It runs east-west through Toyama Prefecture.

The line has 24 stations, covers a distance of 100.1 km, and is electrified.

Originally part of the Hokuriku Main Line, it was separated in 2015. Of those lines, those running mainly in Toyama Prefecture were taken over.

The name of the line was chosen after the public was asked to submit an entry, which was submitted by a housewife in Takaoka City.

A sightseeing train called "13,000 Shaku Monogatari" runs on this line. The name "13,000 Shaku" is derived from the difference in elevation between the Tateyama mountain range, which is 3,000 meters above sea level, and Toyama Bay, which is a deep sea with a load of 1,000 meters.

The 13,000 Shaku Monogatari is a restaurant train, and passengers can travel on the train while eating delicious seafood.

私がウマ娘を遊んでいるのって、「各個別シナリオにおけるキャラクターの解像度が物凄くってストーリーが熱い」「ウマ娘とトレーナーの関係性、更にそれを中心にした他のウマ娘との関係性がとても良い」という点からなので、新シナリオについてはだいぶnot for me気味な感じだなーと……。
