About Japan and Miscellaneous Links
Japan is to railfans what porno theatres are to Pee Wee Herman.
Due to a large number of overlapping conurbations and a variety of urban electric railways, lines of definition become blurred, not only as to mode of urban rail transport but to the areas which they serve. So when definitions become too general, we tighten up the stops. Here's a small taste of what you can expect in this steel paradise.
