Spring time in Tokyo
Author: Hiroshi

The ex-Denenchofu, a.k.a. Garden City" station, stands still. it serves as an entrance to the Garden City.
A local commuting bus from the Shibuya station was approaching the terminal adjacent to the station.

That car looks like a Morgan Plus 8...

And that should be no surprise, since Denenchofu, the "Garden City" is also known as Beverly Hills of Tokyo. Foreign cars are expensive to own in Japan so they are often seen in upscale neighborhoods. But Beverly Hills don't have trains with 4 track mains serving the neighborhood.

Thanks for the annual ritual of sharing the cherry blossoms. Nice catch of the Tokyo Metro Nanboku Line Class 9000, and Tokyu Class 5000.

Yes, it is about time to report springtime 2024.

A Sotetsu Line EMU came down the grade toward Oh-okayama station.

The Denenchofu area was developed based on “Garden Cities of To-morrow” (1902) by Ebenezer Howard.  
 
From the top of the Tamagawa Hill, overlooking the bridge across the Tama River.

A whole lot of eye candy here, it must be very intense in person, pixels simply cannot convey colors that we see in our eyes.
My favorites are the ones with the buds and blossoms close and in focus, with the trains and city much softer in the background.

Nice catch!

This is the result of the new Shin-Yokohama extension of Tokyu Railway, which allows Sagami Railway (nickname Sotetsu) to make a direct connection via Tokyu Railway to central Tokyo and beyond. Sotetsu already has access to Tokyo via JR East's Saikyo Line, which runs parallel to the Yamonote Line.

Sotetsu serves the western suburbs of Yokohama, and the residents now have 2 ways to access Tokyo directly, bypassing the transfer at congested Yokohama that was done in the past. And those access include the 3 busiest stations in Japan, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, and Shibuya.

Yes, Sir, it was a treat to see the Morgan on the street.
It suddenly showed up and parked there for a while.

I came down to the crossing next to the station to see the actions there.

A bus from Futako-Tamagawa showed up from the Tamatsutsume street.

Mother nature is not in favor of us this year.  Overcasting sky and scatting shows.
Flowers are not bright enough to show the real colour.

Meantime, Tamaga line train left the Tamagawa station.
Signal indication, Main 1 to Main 1 for Kamata.

Yes, it's been a year since the joint Tokyu and Sotetsu line operation.
Only Tokyu and Sotetsu equipment are doing the full joint operations
including Sotetsu-Tokyu-Metro-Tobu or Seibu operations via the Tokyu Toyoko line and  Sotetsu-Tokyu-Metro or Toei operations via the Tokyu Megura line.

In the meantime, the Tamaga bound train was approaching the station, doubling Main 2 to Main 1.
At the bus stop, found a small commuter bus waiting for the return trip back to the Tokyo Medical Centre.
