【2014年1月6日】磐越西線 、 只見線 、 早戸温泉 の 冬景色 ( Jan. 6, 2014: Aizu region in deep winter snow, Fukushima Pref. )

本日は、福島県 郡山市 から、雪深い 会津 (猪苗代町→会津若松市→三島町)の 冬景色 の中に行った。郡山から磐越西線で会津若松へ、そして只見線で三島町の早戸温泉へ行く。
Today, I took a train from Koriyama City Fukushima Pref. to Aizu Region all of which was covered by deep snow. The route was JR Ban-etsu West Line from Koriyama to Aizuwakamatsu, and JR Tadami Line from Aizuwakamatsu to Hayato Onsen at Mishima Town.

The actual route was shown in the map below. (The route and altitude data were from GPS log data. The details of the map can be seen by clicking the map.)

The view from Ban etsu West Line changed to snow scene after passing through Bandai-Atami of Koriyama City when the train started to climb up the mountain. And after passing the pass and entering Aizu Region the view was completely snow white. Some views are shown below.
