A show more like a little Travelogue than a drama proper, Tetsu Ota 2 Michiko Man Kiro uses the structure of railfan otaku Michiko’s train-riding ventures visiting obscure and celebrated trains stations all over Japan to take the viewer on a soothing, relaxing trip of their own!

Little dialog is said during the shows outside of Tina Tamashiro’s gentle narration introducing the charms and specific allures of the places she goes to, and the rest is simply wide shots of her walking around the town, taking in the sights, peeking around corners, and investigating hidden pathways...and then it's time to have her ekiben meal, exclusive specialty bentos sold at stations and traveler stops, it in itself another wonderful travel-specific point to share!

Not sure I’ve seen another drama like this- You as the viewer are really allowed to sit back and take in the sights, making you feel like you’ve been on the journey with Tina all along.

As someone who hasn’t traveled much, this drama is a wonderful way to see and enjoy the beauty of Japan all from the seat of my desk, however in one poignant summation, Michiko sagely remarks:

“You can’t find it just by Googling.
These are sceneries that can only be encountered by passing through it.”
-YUI

A gentle encouragement to couch potatoes like myself to actually get out of the house and go out into the wide world and discover what’s out there!

As Calvin once said to his tiger buddy Hobbes, “It’s a Magical World, Hobbes…Let’s go Exploring!!”

I just love this!

I really like this format and atmosphere of just going alone somewhere and enjoying simple things on way, food, views, encounters.

It has slow pace, but thats why I like it even more.
??????????????????

For foodie like me, wishing to also travel to Japan to not tourist places and enjoy the whole trip by trains, this is the best.

I kind of was looking for something like that and japanese production never let me down! ???
