Travel Update – Nikko and Kinugawa

As you may have heard, this week portions of Ibaraki, Tochigi and Miyagi prefectures were hit with torrential rainfall and flooding. The weather has impacted routes to the tourist areas of Nikko and Kinugawa – all trains to these cities have been shut down as the damage is assessed.

Several people living in these areas are dead or missing. My thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the floods.
